Primary Health Network accepts all patients regardless of their insurance or financial status. We are a federally funded health care program which in turn allows us to offer a wide range of services to patients through the sliding-fee scale.

We offer the sliding-fee scale to all income eligible uninsured or under-insured patients based on annual household income for most of our services. Income guidelines and acceptable verification for the sliding-fee scale are as listed below.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Altoona Behavioral Health website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021

*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%.
