How do I become a patient?
The Community Health Center does not deny anyone primary healthcare services. We serve all ages, regardless of insurance status. This means we serve anyone who: is uninsured, has Medicaid, Medicare, or is insured with private insurance. This includes our Christiansburg and Pearisburg locations.
The first step in becoming a patient at the Community Health Center of the New River Valley is to complete a Patient Application form.
Sliding Fee Program
The Community Health Center is pleased to offer financial assistance to eligible individuals and families through our Sliding Fee Discount Program. This program applies to medical, dental, and behavioral health services; however, our medical, dental, and behavioral health departments each utilize a different sliding fee scale.
If you are interested in applying for the Sliding Fee Discount Program, the forms are included in the application. Sliding Fee Discounts are available to all patients at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, with or without insurance coverage.
Becoming a Patient
We are accepting new patients.
If you are uninsured, please fill out the Uninsured Patient Application and then call the Center to find out when you should meet with a Patient Services Representative to go over your paperwork. Once you have met with the representative, you can start making appointments
If you have insurance, patients can call the centers to schedule an appointment. Please have your insurance card ready so the front office can take your information. Additionally, complete the Insured Patient Application and return it to the Center 30 minutes before your first appointment or anytime prior.
