Sliding Fee Discount Program / Tarifas de Programa de Niveles

There is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available based on family size and income. The Sheridan Health Services Sliding Fee Discount Program applies to medical, behavioral health, and dental visits, and related expenses. No one will be denied access to services due to an inability to pay. Uninsured or underinsured individual or family applicants will be assigned a fee category based on their total income and resources. The category determines the discounted fee that will be charged to the applicant for services provided. Fees should be paid at the time of service.

Applicants with third-party insurance may also be eligible to apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program. If eligible, the sliding fee rate would be applied to any balance due after the primary insurance pays its portion.

Changes to the rating or application may occur when:

  • The 12-month application period has expired
  • Family income has changed significantly
  • The number of dependents in the family has changed
  • The information provided was not accurate
  • Sheridan Health Services changes the sliding fee discount schedules
