Sliding Fee Clinics Help Increase Access to Healthcare

April 23rd, 2013

For many uninsured Arizonans, a doctor’s visit is a luxury that they simply can’t afford. That is unless they’re visiting a Sliding Fee Schedule Clinic.  These clinics are a vital part of our healthcare system and provide a broad range of primary care, dental and mental health services to uninsured patients regardless of their ability to pay.  Patients at these clinics are screened for income and insurance status and may pay nothing or a nominal fee for their visit based on their gross income, family size and current federal poverty guidelines. 

Our Bureau of Health Systems Development team recently put together an interactive map of all of the a Sliding Fee Schedule Clinics in Arizona- along with links to their websites and contact information.  It’s an excellent resource for finding the clinic nearest to you.  If you’re interested in learning more about Sliding Fee Schedule clinics or would like information on developing or implementing a sliding fee schedule in your clinic, you can visit the SFS Clinic web page.
