Uncompensated Care

40% of our patients have no regular health insurance coverage.
The uninsured patients are expected to pay a sliding fee based on their income, but since most are living at 100% of the federal poverty level ($24,250 annual household income for family of 4) it is a hardship.
RFHC does receive limited reimbursement for categorical services such as prenatal, well child, family planning, and cancer detection, but many visits are uncompensated.
