Scenic Bluffs Community Health Centers provide affordable, high-quality healthcare to patients. We believe everyone deserves access to healthcare, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. We offer a sliding-fee scale program, called the Healthy Neighbor Plan, that may reduce your cost for care. Depending on your household size and income, you may qualify. This is a completely confidential service provided to you by Scenic Bluffs Community Health Centers. All are encouraged to apply.
Benefits of this program:

If you qualify, you will be eligible for reduced fees incurred at Scenic Bluffs Community Health Centers. These discounts are applied for most services in our dental, medical, behavioral health, acupuncture, massage therapy and chiropractic departments.
Apply by filling out an application and submitting it with all of the required proof to process your application. It usually takes a few days to determine eligibility. You will be notified of your status via letter. Once you are approved coverage starts at your very next service. If you have insurance coverage, we will bill your insurance company first and apply the discount to the balance of your account after the insurance payment or denial has been received.
You will be responsible for updating your application on a yearly basis or as your income changes. You are required to pay each day you receive services.
