Services provided at this center include: Medical, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, and Behavioral Health.

Patients at this center who are not insured or who many qualify for a sliding fee discount, Medicaid or other assistance programs should bring proper identification, proof of income and other supporting documents.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Communicare Health Centers San Marcos 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
7 $39,640
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%.
