About Central Care Clinic MLK
Sliding Scale

Central Care Community Health Center aspires to provide accessible, affordable and high-quality comprehensive health care services to all residents of the communities they serve, whose healthcare needs are unmet through patient-centered education, collaborations wellness and outreach programs to eliminate healthcare disparities.

Central Care's mission is to provide quality healthcare to all, regardless of your ability to pay. They are not a free clinic, but their care is affordable and accessible.   Patients who do not have insurance may qualify for their sliding fee scale program, which is based on your household income and family size. Depending on your situation, you may save 25 percent to 100 percent off the regular fees.

Offers Medical, Dental, and Behavioral Health services.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Central Care Clinic MLK 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%.
