Medicaid does cover the cost of visit, labs and medication. We will provide the medication. Clients with private insurance will be considered self-pay or referred to a provider who accepts insurance. The cost for self-pay is $65 per provider visit with labs. We will use a sliding fee scale when appropriate.
