Finance & Billing

 Southwest Community Health Center, Inc. is committed to providing quality healthcare and service to all patients. In order to continue this mission, it is essential that payment be received at the time of service. We will submit claims to any insurance company according to established billing guidlines. To do this in an efficient manner, it is important that patients provide their insurance information at the time of service. We accept Medicaid, HUSKY, SAGA, Medicare and Private insurance.

To assist patients in meeting their financial obligations, Southwest Community Health Center, Inc. provides the following payment programs:

Credit Cards/Checks/Cash

SWCHC will honor Debit, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards for payment of services at the time of the visit. Personal checks and money orders are also accepted.

Sliding Fee Schedule Program

SWCHC offers a Discounted Fee Schedule Program for patients who do not have insurance or whose income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty level. The amount of the fee discounted is based on your family size, income, and determined based upon annual established Federal Poverty Level income guidelines. A patient must complete an application for the discounted fee program and provide income verification, (last 2 paystubs, copy of entitlement checks, W2, etc.). SWCHC recommends that all new patients call the main number (203) 330-6000 for more information on required documentation.


SWCHC assists all patients in applying for third party assistance such as; Medicaid, SAGA, and Husky A & B. Please ask our Front Office Receptionist for information.

Payment Arrangements

If you do not qualify for a payment discount, SWCHC will offer you the option to establish payment arrangements to pay any outstanding balance, in a reasonable period of time. Patients will not be turned away for their inability to pay. We will make every effort to work with you. For payment arrangements or any questions/concerns regarding your bill, contact the Billing Department at 203-332-3157.
