Sliding Fee Scale

About Our Sliding Fee Scale (SFS)

El Rio Health offers a Sliding Fee Scale to all income eligible uninsured or under‐insured patients. This program allows qualifying patients to receive care at a lower cost. Eligibility for the sliding fee scale will be established by determining the household size and annual household income. This information must be updated annually.

No one is denied services solely based on inability to pay.

Immigration status is not a factor in order to receive these benefits. Anyone who lives in the United States may apply.
