The Sliding Fee Discount Program is designed to help cover your out-of-pocket expenses for medical care provided by Seward Community Health Center. Patient eligibility is based on household size and income.

All patients are welcome to apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program. Not everyone will qualify for a discount.  Determination of your discount, if any, depends upon your household size and income. Your household includes yourself, your spouse or unmarried significant other, and dependents under 18 years old.  Special situations apply.
