Intake Process and Financial Policies


Welcome to Peninsula Community Health Services of Alaska

We welcome the opportunity to serve as the medical home for new and existing patients. PCHS is designated as a "Federally Qualified Health Center," serves patients of all ages, accepts a variety of payment methods including private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and Denali Kid Care and provides access to uninsured and underinsured clients.

Financial Policy

Everyone who can afford to pay for services is expected to pay all or a portion of the fee. No one will be refused services because of an inability to pay. We accept most forms of private insurance, as well as Medicaid, Denali Kid Care, Medicare and other state funded programs: Breast and Cervical Health Check (BCHC) and Chronic and Acute Medical Assistance (CAMA).

Patients are responsible for the balance not covered by insurance or 3rd parties.

Sliding Scale Discount Policy

For those who qualify, discounts are applied to the unpaid balance or patient's "out-of-pocket expense." 

Eligibility for discounts is based on household size and monthly gross income. Base rates are calculated using national poverty levels as adjusted for Alaska and extended up to 200%.

For those who qualify for a discount, proof of income is required.

Need Help with Transportation?

If you need a ride to or from the Medical Center, the Dental Center, or the Behavioral Health Center please let the staff know when scheduling your appointment. We will assist in making transportation arrangements.
