Sliding Fee Schedule
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, Greater Valley Health Center is able to offer most services on a sliding fee scale. This means that depending on your family income and family size, you may be eligible for the Sliding Fee Discount Program.
Health Insurance Help
We offer assistance for our patients and the community at large in obtaining health insurance. This includes Medicaid and the Health Insurance Marketplace for those who earn too much for Medicaid. In both of cases, we can assist you in creating an account and submitting an application.
We are pleased to offer a medication assistance program to our established patients. Medication assistance programs help provide free or reduced price prescriptions. Greater Valley Health Center has an experienced patient advocate on staff who is familiar with the programs and is able to help patients apply.
The Montana Legislature approved the Montana HELP Plan in 2016, offering affordable health insurance through expansion of Medicaid. The HELP Plan covers doctor visits, prescription drugs, emergency services, dental and vision services, chronic disease management and more. Greater Valley Health Center accepts Montana HELP Plan coverage and you may also be able to use our income-based sliding fee scale to cover remaining medical costs. The HELP Plan is open to Montana residents, ages 19 through 64, who do not qualify for Medicare coverage and who meet income guidelines. Our Care Coordinators can help you sign up for the HELP Plan or other insurance, or you can apply online at HealthCare.gov.
We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most private insurances. Please call 406-607-4900 to find out if we accept yours.
If you do not have insurance but are interested in whether you are eligible or have questions one of our enrollment specialists would be happy to help you. Please call 406-607-4886.
We accept all patients regardless of ability to pay. We have payment plan options, lower cost services, and a sliding fee discount for those who may qualify. Please fill out our sliding fee discount application and bring it with you to your next appointment.
