Clinic Payment and Discount Policy
Schleicher County Medical Center and Schleicher County Family Clinic serve all patients regardless of ability to pay.
Discounts for uninsured patients seeking medically necessary care provided by the hospital and clinic are offered based on the size of the patient’s immediate family, annual household income, and a sliding scale comparing household income with the hospital and clinic’s charity care income guidelines.
Uninsured patients may apply for a discount in the hospital business office, or clinic front desk.
Our providers contract with most major health insurance companies and participate in the plans these companies offer. A partial list of insurance companies with which we have contracts can be found below. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.

Copays, coinsurance and deductibles are due at the time of service. Not all services, even those most people consider routine, will be covered by every insurance plan. If you have questions about specific benefits, please contact your insurance carrier. Services not covered by your insurance plan are the patient’s responsibility.
