I have insurance, so I can't be seen at PATHS, can I?
This couldn't be further from the truth! PATHS is currently accepting new patients at all sites and accepts all forms of insurance - including Medicare and Medicaid. Sliding Fee Scales and other special programs are dependent on the revenues generated from providing care to patients with insurance.
What is the difference between PATHS and the Free Clinic?
PATHS services are not free. Special payment options (sliding fee scales, etc.) are available for those who qualify, but all patients will be required to pay a nominal fee (at minimum) or according to their health insurance's copay/deductible.
