About Lone Star Circle of Care at the University of Houston
Sliding Scale

Services at this location include:

  • Behavioral & Mental Health
  • Family Medicine
  • Pediatrics

Lone Star Circle of Care accepts Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP, MAP, and most insurance plans.

Lone Star Circle of Care offers discounted services according to a sliding fee scale based on your income and family size if you do not qualify for health care coverage or your insurance does not cover certain types of services.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Lone Star Circle of Care at the University of Houston website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021
Persons In Family Household Poverty Guideline Salary per year
1 $12,760
2 $17,240
3 $21,720
4 $26,200
5 $30,680
6 $35,160

8 $44,120

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 legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. 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%.
