We are a nonprofit organization that provides medical services to underserved adults, ages 18-64, in our community.
We partner with Duke Life Point and NC MedAssist to provide primary medical care and help patients obtain low-cost or free prescription medications.
If you or a loved one is uninsured and makes less than 200% of poverty level, then please contact us to see if you qualify to receive free medical care.
Our phone line is open Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday mornings 9 am to 12 pm
To qualify for care from the Swain County Caring Corner you must:
Be an adult, age 18-64
Make less than 200% of the poverty level, based on the table below.
Count the number of people in your family, including yourself and any children. Then count the amount of money you and anyone else in your family make each week or year. If it is less than the number in the table, you may qualify.
Swain County Caring Corner will treat all qualified applicants without requiring any documentation. However, we can provide limited services in our clinic.
To be eligible for additional services we are partnered with both the Duke LifePoint/Swain Community Hospital and NCMedAssist. If your healthcare provider determines that you need laboratory tests or a referral to a specialist, these services are provided free of charge to patients through the Duke LifePoint Charity care program. Free medications can be obtained through NCMedAssist. To participate in these programs, you will need the documents below
Proof of residency - driver's license or bill with your name and address
Proof of income - a month's worth of paystubs or a letter of support
IRS Income Tax Form - First 2 pages of the IRS 1040 form for 1 page of 1040EZ form
Proof that you have applied for Medicaid
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Swain County Caring Corner website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
|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%.
