Quality Care for All
Quality Care for All
Our health clinics are committed to providing quality care for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. We have a sliding fee scale for people who are uninsured or underinsured, whose incomes are below 200% of the federal poverty level. We consider your family size and your income when using the sliding fee scale. Fees for services will be reduced based on the sliding fee scale. To apply for our sliding fee scale, you will need to provide proof of income and family size. Eligibility is extended to all patients, regardless of other medical coverage. Patients may be insured and still qualify for a sliding fee.

Toe River Health Isn’t a Name That You Hear Often Unless You’re From Around These Parts
There was once believed to be a beautiful Indian princess by the name of Estatoe, pronounced “s-ta-toe” who met a handsome warrior from a rival Indian tribe one day while wading in a stream. The two fell hard for one another, although their love turned out to be ill-fated and spurned by their rivaling tribes. The lovers, pushed to the brink of a cliff, decided to make their love eternal and jumped, hand-in-hand into the river. Estatoe’s father, a Chief, was devastated and named the river “The Estatoe” in her honor.
