Sliding Fee Discount Program
Sliding fee discount program" (SFDP) is a schedule of discounts for service, or "sliding fee discount schedule" that ensures financial barriers to care are minimized for patients who meet certain eligibility criteria.
It is the policy of Star Community Health that no one will be denied services based on the inability to pay. The sliding fee discount is available for those who qualify on family size and gross income. We offer our Sliding Fee Program to insured and uninsured patients. Potential users of the sliding fee benefit must be able to provide verifiable documentation of household family members and total family income.
If you are not sure if you will qualify, please contact our financial counselors and they will guide you through the application process. Or you can apply here.
