Community Health and Dental Care’s mission is to identify gaps in health services, and to ensure access, to appropriate levels of care for all people in the service area regardless of their ability to pay.
CHDC is not a free clinic. Health care discounts are offered based on family size and income determined by Federal poverty guidelines and renew annually. Patients who do not wish to apply for the discount may sign a refusal form, but do not give up the right to apply at any time.
CHDC staff members are available to assist patients with insurance concerns, the health care discount application, setting up payment plans, and answering questions in order to ensure access for services at CHDC. CHDC also offers referral assistance along with on-site Case Management who is able to assist patients with eligibility requirements for government programs.
