Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021

Persons In Family Household Poverty Guideline Salary per year

*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%.

Admin on Oct 23, 2015

I have been to this clinic.I needed medical care. This clinic was completely free. The staff was friendly. I waited less than 30 minutes This is the worst doctor I have ever seen. He started by telling me he wouldn't see me again because I smoke!Also,He had done diagnosed me before ever coming in the room.never asked me what I was feeling or what the the problem was.He also was extremely rude and unprofessional.He talked at me and NOT with me and every time I tried to talk to him or ask a question he dismissed me or interrupted me.Never have I been treated so poorly by a physician. The only thing this man is qualified to do is give you a bandaide and tylenol. I will never try going back and NEVER will I recommend anyone else to go see him.EVER the medical board needs to do something about this doctor before someone dies or is seriously hurt from his lack of proper diagnosis.It's doctors like this that cause people to lie about their medical history and NOT get treatment when needed for fear of NOT being heard or believed.The staff was great and was the only pleasant part of my visit.Please if you have been treated by this doctor get a second opinion.
