We advocate for affordable healthcare with elected officials at the state and federal level to maintain and improve access whenever we can by teleconference, correspondence and trips in person to Frankfort and Washington DC as well as our membership in the Kentucky Primary Care Association.

Affordable

Fairview Community Health Center is not a Free Clinic, however we are designated as a safety net provider in the area by the Federal Government. This gives us access to funding & the flexibility to work with our patients, both insured and un-insured, to find a financial solution that does not result into a financial burden for them. All fees for self-pay patients can be adjusted based on the patient’s ability to pay and their income based as compared to the federal poverty sliding scale guidelines. We will not refuse services to those who are unable to pay. However, we do ask for a $25 nominal charge to all that can afford it and can contribute to the mission of Fairview CHC.

Accountable
