Insurance & Sliding Fee Program

Insurance

We accept Medi-Cal, Medicare, CMSP, Path to Health, and Partnership Health Plan. If you have private insurance we will bill as a courtesy. Please call your insurance to find out if SCHC is a contracted provider. If your coverage requires you to have an assigned primary care provider, please ensure you are assigned to SCHC. Please remember to bring your insurance ID card and any co-payments to every appointment.

Don’t Have Insurance?

Depending on your income you may qualify for a sliding fee discount. Ask about the sliding fee discount when you call for an appointment. These discounts are due to federal funding that SCHC gets to provide discounted services for uninsured and underinsured patients.

We also offer a FREE service to individuals and families with enrolling into Covered California, Medi-Cal, and Path to Health. Allow one of our Outreach & Enrollment Specialists to help you in picking the health plan that best fits your needs. If you have questions, or would like to set up an appointment, give us a call at (530) 229-5117. Se habla espanol.

Sliding Fee Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

What is SCHC’s Sliding Fee Discount Program? 
The Sliding Fee Scale is a discount program that SCHC offers through a federal grant for our patients who demonstrate financial need. The inability to pay shouldn’t be a barrier for receiving health care. Your income is vital to ensure that you pay the lowest possible price for our services.  Completing our Sliding Fee Application is where we capture your household income and family size and we can alert your chart to receive any sliding fee discounts you may qualify for.

What are the benefits of the Sliding Fee Discount Program?
The Sliding Fee Scale applies to most services and can lower the cost of medical payments, lab work, x-rays, and prescriptions.

I have health insurance; can I still apply for the sliding scale? 
Yes. If you qualify, the Sliding Fee Discount will be applied to any balance that insurance doesn’t cover for most services rendered at SCHC.  All patients, whether insured or uninsured, are eligible.

Who pays for the services that are discounted?
The Sliding Fee Discount Program is made possible by federal grants through the Bureau of Primary Health Care.

I have Insurance (example Medi-Cal, Medicare, Partnership, Private Insurance) so why should I fill out the Sliding Fee Scale application dealing with my income?
Sometimes your insurance may not cover the specific services we may provide to you. By having the sliding fee scale application filled out and on file we can greatly reduce your charges. This is also a requirement of our funders making sure we are focused on patients who can most benefit from our services.
