Union Community Care does charge fees for the healthcare services we provide, but there are many different ways of payment that keep our services affordable to patients. We care for patients with no insurance, commercial insurance, Medical Assistance, or Medicare. If you are not sure if your health insurance covers our services, please call 717-299-6371 and ask to connect with our Billing Department.
What is the Sliding Fee Discount Program?
The Sliding Fee Discount Program offers a discounted rate or fee for medical & preventive dental services at our centers. The Sliding Fee Discount Program is available to all uninsured and insured patients based on their household income and size.
We apply the discount to appointment costs, deductibles, coinsurance, and medication prescriptions through the 340B program. All other payments are due at your appointment time.
Patients in our Sliding Fee Discount Program who do not have health insurance will pay a rate for medical exams, dental exams, x-rays, and cleanings. All payments are due at your appointment time:
Sliding Scale A: $25.00
Sliding Scale B: $35.00
Sliding Scale C: $45.00
Sliding Scale D: $50.00
How do I apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program?
Patients will have to share their household income and size (including spouse and all dependents) for all household members.
You can apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program during registration and use it the same day if approved. Tell a Patient Access Specialist that you would like to apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program today!
How long does the Sliding Fee Discount last?
Patients will need to re-apply every year for the Sliding Fee Discount Program.
340B Program Savings
The 340B program requires Federally Qualified Health Centers, like ours, to invest all 340B savings into care & services that advance our mission to spark equity through patient-led healthcare that welcomes and strengthens our communities by integrating body, mind, and heart. After providing our patients with access to affordable medication, including through our Pharmacy Voucher Program, we use the remaining 340B savings to provide care management services and social support, including community health resources coordination and social services.
