INSURANCE ENROLLMENT AND FEE
Anyone who walks in our door receives the care he or she needs, whether they have insurance or not, regardless of ability to pay or immigration status. If you don’t have insurance, we see if there is a program you are eligible for, and help sign you up. There are more options available than you might know about. We make it easy by handling the paperwork.

Sliding Fee Discount Program – Help is Available to Pay Your Healthcare Costs
At Saban Community Clinic, our patients’ well-being and access to quality health care is our number one priority. No patient will be turned away if they are unable to pay. We will work with you to make sure you and your family receive the health care you need.
We offer self-paying patients a generous discount on their bill(s) through our Sliding Fee Discount Program.
What is the Sliding Fee Discount Program? It is a program that may offer you a discount on your medical bill. The discount percentage is based on federal income guidelines. This means patient eligibility is determined by annual income and family size. You can apply for a discount even if you have health insurance.
How does the Sliding Fee Discount Program Work? The program is designed to allow people to pay for health care services based on their ability to pay. Therefore, people making less money will pay less than people making more money.
The Sliding Fee Discount Schedule is updated annually in accordance with Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, which change every year.
Good Faith Estimate: As Required by law, Good Faith Estimates for patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance, will be provided. This includes an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. To learn more, review the Good Faith Estimate Document.
