Discounted Fees Based on Federally Established Guidelines

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Will County Community Health Center offers discounts based on federally established guidelines.  You may be eligible for a discount if you are not covered by an insurance plan. Services are not free. 

Discounts are based upon family size and income.  Proof of income is required to be considered for a discount. Discount levels are 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% on eligible services.  There is a minimum $25.00 fee due per visit, regardless of discount.  Discounts are re-evaluated each year.

In order to remain financially viable and competitive in their local marketplace and to help improve access to care patients may be required to be assessed for eligible entitlements (entitlements may include Medicaid, Illinois Healthy Women, IBCCP, or other public benefits).  Will County Community Health Center provides assistance in completing entitlement programs.

Most Laboratory services for self-pay patients ordered and processed at the clinic are eligible for discounts and are billed by the centers' contracted vendors.  Laboratory discounts are available to patients of the center only.

This Health Center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 245b, & a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).

We accept Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance,  and PPO’s.  Patients without insurance are on a sliding fee scale. MasterCard & Visa may also be used.
