Fees & Pricing

  • Medical/Optometry/Podiatry/Behavioral Health Visit  – start at $25
  • Chiropractic – start at $10

  • Eye glasses fee $60
  • Prescription fee start at $13

Discounts are also provided for patients with income between 100-200% of the federal poverty level.

Sliding Fee Scale Policy

As a federally qualified health center under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, Affinia Healthcare provides essential services to patients regardless of their ability to pay.  Affinia Healthcare does not discriminate in the provision of care for patients due to their socioeconomic status, race, ethnic origin, gender, religious beliefs and practices, or sexual orientation.


Affinia Healthcare provides a sliding fee discount to unisured patients with incomes below 200 % of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. No discount is provided to patients with incomes exceeding 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Section 330 grant regulations require Affinia Healthcare to collect co-pays and other amounts due from patients based on their ability to pay. Ability to pay is determined by household income and family size.


To qualify for our Sliding Fee Discount, patients must submit current information documenting household income and family size on an annual basis. One (or in some circumstances, a combination) of the following is acceptable documentation to assess eligibility:


  • Copy of most recent pay stubs for all members of household
  • Letter from employer stating annual income
  • W-2 forms for all members of household for recent year
  • Federal tax return 1040 from previous year
  • Social Security / entitlement statement from previous month or
  • Letter from the Division of Employment Security


Changes to income level should be brought to our attention so we can assess your income level and co-pay accurately.
The Sliding Fee Discount does not mean your visit is free. It provides savings to patients who have incomes below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines. A co-payment is expected at time of service. You may pay by cash, check, Master Card/Visa or Debit.
Patients must pay balance within sixty (60) days of the visit. If a patient has not made a payment within sixty days or has a balance of $50 or more and is scheduled for an appointment, the patient may be re-scheduled for non-emergent services or care until payment or partial payment is rendered.
