Sliding Fee Schedule Program
At Southwest Georgia Healthcare Clinics, we are committed to providing quality healthcare to the patients we serve regardless of their ability to pay.
Any patient may apply for the fee adjustments based on their income and the size of their family.
The sliding fee scale cannot be used for charges payable to Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance or any third party payers. However, the sliding fee schedule adjustments may pay for services not covered by insurance carriers.
