As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Katahdin Valley Health Center (KVHC) provides a sliding fee discount for all services to patients who meet the eligibility guidelines. Sliding fee discounts are determined according to household size and yearly income, regardless of health insurance status. This program allows patients to pay a set co-pay of $10, $20, $35, $45, or $50 per medical visit, or a certain percentage on their bill at our dental offices if they qualify.
