The Malama IKe Ola Health Center is a federally qualified health center providing YOU with medical and dental care as well as WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) and counseling services. We have been fortunate to receive federal funding to meet our community’s healthcare needs. Our Sliding-fee Discount program provides a discount for YOU if you qualify under income guidelines. It is based upon your household size and total gross income and YOU could qualify for a 25% up to a 100% discount on clinic and counseling services. This discount may be applied to insurance co-pays, thus reducing the amount you have to pay.The discount applies to the health center services but there are some minimums that we will charge so that we are able to meet the costs of providing the care YOU need when YOU need it! The minimal office charge is $25 for clinical, $30 for dental and $10 for counseling services. This nominal fee covers the costs of on-site laboratory services and medicines you receive from us. Please inquire at the front desk if you have questions about the discounts you can receive.
