For eligible patients, PrimeCare’s services are offered on a sliding fee discount program. No patient will be denied health care services due to their inability to pay for such services. Any fees or payments required by PrimeCare will be reduced or waived to make this possible. Eligibility for discounts is based solely on income and family size – not whether or not you have insurance. Here’s the scale for 2017: To see where your household income falls on this scale, click here. In order to receive these discounts, you will need to establish your eligibility by filling out an application. You can view this application here. At the bottom of the first page are the documents you will need to bring with you to complete your application. Because the document must be signed, you will have to fill it out when you come for a visit. Eligibility is determined on an annual basis, and you will need to reapply every year.
