Sliding Fee Discount Program

Siskiyou Community Health Center serves all patients regardless of ability to pay. Sliding fee discounts are offered and eligibility is based on your household size and income.

To be considered for this program you need to complete our Eligibility Determination application and submit acceptable proof of income for all adults in the household. If you do not supply adequate proof of income or you do not qualify based on the proof of income received, you will be responsible for the full charges.
Once your application is approved, it will be valid for one year, unless your financial situation changes. A new application and proof of income will be required after one year to continue to be considered for the slide program.

You will be expected to pay your portion of the visit at check in for each visit.

Household Member Guidelines:

  • Includes you, your spouse, your children (anyone you claim as a dependent on your federal tax return), your live-in partner (if you have children together), and anyone else you include on your federal tax return, even if they do not live with you. A copy of your federal tax return will be required as proof of dependents if individuals, other than your spouse and children under 18, are indicated.
