OPHS is staffed with qualified, culturally diverse, multi-lingual medical providers including doctors, nurse practitioners, behavioral health specialists, nurses and medical assistants. Our staff work as a team to ensure each patient receives the best care possible in an individually tailored, convenient and compassionate manner.
We believe that everyone is entitled to affordable health care, whether you are insured or not. For those without insurance OPHS provides a sliding fee discount program based on household income and family size. This assures quality health care is available for everyone!
We pride ourselves on the diversity of our staff and patients! By staying focused on recognizing, understanding, respecting, and responding to unique ethnic and cultural convictions we hope to create a lifelong trusting relationship with our patients, their families and our community.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Oakland Primary Health Service website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
