The Community Health Center Primary Care Program at Monongahela Valley Association of Health Centers, Inc. provides assistance for qualified individuals and families; either insured, underinsured, or uninsured; based on a sliding fee discount for basic healthcare needs.  Patients with income at or below 200% federal poverty level, dependent on family size, regardless of insurance status, qualify for this program by following the application process at any MVA location.

CHC Primary Care Program recipients will be required to update their information yearly.  If any changes occur during the twelve month period, updated paperwork will be reviewed at either MVA location.

CHC fees must be made each visit.

If proof of income is not documented within two weeks, all discounts will be cancelled and the patient will be responsible for all services in full.  (See below for details)
