New Path Medical Center is a Rural Health Clinic. We are able to offer a discount on some services based on a household’s income and size. Sliding fee calculations are determined by using an applicant’s total annual income provided by the Federal Income Tax return(s), W-2(s) or 1099(s), most recent pay stubs, Social Security or Pension Income, and Public Assistance award letters. NPMC uses the Federal Poverty Guidelines to determine your eligibility.
Your household discount will be assessed once per year. You must reapply for the Sliding Fee Discount and provide updated income documentation at this time.
If you wish to qualify for the sliding fee, you must show proof of income for all family members/individuals living in your household or individuals for whom you are financially responsible. If you do not have any source of income, please speak with a staff member. Applicants should provide a copy of either:
• Previous year’s tax return, W-2’s or 1099’s
• Most recent pay stubs spanning four weeks
• Social Security or Pension Income
• Public assistance award letters for each adult age 18 and over living in the household
