Shawnee Financial Assistance Program
We are able to provide discounts for services provided at our health centers. This is made possible through grant funding from the US Public Health Service, Bureau of Primary Health Care.
These discounts can be used by:
- people who are uninsured
- people with insurance who are eligible (qualified)
- people with qualifying hardships
Individuals and families are encouraged to apply for this assistance. Eligibility is based on family size and family’s income before taxes and deductions. Discounts apply only to services provided at Shawnee Health Care locations.
An application form must be completed and requires proof of income (see Documents). Click here to open the application as a PDF.
We can assist you with completing the application. Just call (618) 519-9200 or speak with a staff member at the front desk of any of our health centers.
Processing may take up to 2 business days. Nominal (very small sum) Fees are due at the time of service.
No individual will be denied essential services due to inability to pay.
