Care for Uninsured

Hepatitis care and treatment for the uninsured or under-insured

Grant Funded Programs that Cover Cost of Care for Uninsured

Low Cost Care: Sliding Scale

Public Hospitals (HHC) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) are required to provide care regardless of ability to pay.

  • To find Hepatitis clinics in these systems, see the online Site Locator.
  • See here for a list of HBV programs providing care on a sliding fee scale.
  • HHC Options - Through HHC Options, low and moderate-income HHC patients can get affordable healthcare. HHC helps patients apply for public health insurance programs for which they may qualify. If a patient is not eligible for public insurance, we reduce the patient’s fee to an affordable amount, based on family size and income. For example, a child in a family of four whose annual income is between $57,626 and $69,150 can be seen at an HHC hospital or clinic for a fee of $15 per visit.
