Paying Your Bill
We are a federally qualified health center that serves people in need with access to affordable health care. CHC/SEIA is not a free clinic, but we do serve the patients with a variety of income levels and backgrounds. We believe that each patient should participate in their own health and that includes contributing financially to the cost of their care. However no patient will be turned away because they cannot pay.
We offer a sliding fee program to assist you with your medical, behavior health or dental cost. We are able to offer this program because of the generosity of grants and private donations, and we sincerely appreciate this support so we can build a healthier community for all; no patient will be turned away because they are unable to pay.
Methods of Payment
We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and credit cards (Visa; Mastercard).
CHC/SEIA encourage our patients setup payment plans, if they have personal financial situations where patient payment cannot be made at the time of service.
