The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is a federal government program administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW). Since 1972, the NHSC has been building healthy communities, ensuring access to health care for everyone, preventing disease and illness, and caring for the most vulnerable populations who may otherwise go without care.
It is the policy of Ashton and Island Park Medical Clinics to provide essential medical services regardless of the patients' ability to pay.
Discounts are offered based upon household income and size. A sliding fee scale is used to calculate the basic discount and is updated each year using the federal poverty guidelines.
Once approved, the discount will be honored for one (1) year, after which the patient may choose to reapply.
