Frequently Asked Questions
Who can go to the Cooperative Health Center?
Anyone. We primarily serve people without other access to primary care services. This includes people with no insurance, inadequate insurance or a limited income.
Does it cost a lot to see a Clinic doctor?
It shouldn’t cost a lot to get good health care, so we provide services at the lowest possible cost for those in need. Our services are provided on a sliding fee scale, depending upon family size and income level. Be sure to bring some kind of income verification to your visit.
When do I have to pay?
Payment is expected at the time of service. Arrangements can be made if payment is not possible at the time of service – just ask. Nobody is turned away because of an inability to pay.
Do you accept Medicaid?
Yes, we accept Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP and private insurance.
