Sliding Fee Program


Jordan Valley Community Health Center offers a sliding fee program to help patients access the care they need whether or not they have health coverage. The slide program provides discounted rates for many services provided at Jordan Valley.

How Can I Join The Sliding Fee Program?

  1. Meet with a Care Coordinator at Jordan Valley who will help you fill out the slide application.

  2. Provide your current and valid photo ID.

  3. Provide printed proof of all sources of income for all persons who live in your home with you.

  4. If you or your child could be eligible for Medicaid, the Care Coordinator will help you with the MO HealthNet application.

The following are approved ways to verify your household income:

  • Wages, salaries, and/or tips

  • Federal or state letters that show amount of benefits

  • Benefit check

  • Statement of benefits

  • Other printed documents that show amount of income source

Bank statements cannot be used for proof of income.

How Does The Slide Program Work?

Slide is applied like a co-pay per visit or as other discounts for onsite care you or your child get at Jordan Valley. The co-pays or discounts are based on how your total income amount and household member size compares to federal poverty guidelines.

Some tests, procedures, or other services provided at Jordan Valley are not covered in the slide program. Before you agree to services, we’ll estimate your cost so you can plan for your care. You are asked to pay slide fees at the time of service.


A short list of common slide co-pays and discounts is shown below. To learn how slide may apply to other services, talk with a Financial Counselor at Jordan Valley.
