Payment Programs

Insurance & Discount Programs

We bill all insurance plans and are an in-network provider/PPO for many plans (see the list below). If you don’t have insurance, no need to worry—we can help! No one will be denied services based on inability to pay.

There are millions of Americans without health insurance or are under-insured for a variety of reasons. As a partially federally-funded health center, we may be able to help you receive low-cost primary health care. We offer health services for the entire community through a Sliding Fee Discount Program. We also offer annual well woman exams and mammography through our Breast and Cervical Program, and treat fishermen injuries through Fishermen’s Fund. Some prescription medications are also available on-site at greatly reduced costs.

Sliding Fee Discount Program

At KCHC everyone has the right to complete an application for the Sliding Fee Discount Program. Upon completion of the application, KCHC determines the level of the sliding fee discount qualified based on household size and gross income as per federal guidelines. Written proof of ALL HOUSEHOLD income is to be attached to the application form for members over the age of 18. A household, which is considered one family, is defined as all persons who combine their money to help pay rent, share the cost of food, and utilities.

Ladies First

Ladies First provides breast and cervical health screening services to women who meet certain income guidelines, do not have insurance, cannot meet their insurance deductible, or whose insurance doesn’t pay for breast and cervical health screening services. Ladies First pays for clinical breast exams, pelvic exams, Pap tests and screening and diagnostic mammograms appropriate for a women’s age and medical history.

Ladies First can pay for approved screening exams. If any exam results are abnormal, Ladies First may also pay for approved diagnostic tests to rule out problems, including cancer.
