Sliding Fee Discount Program:

BBAHC offers a sliding discount for certain medical services. The discount is based on income and if qualified, can reduce self-pay amounts owed from 25% to 100%. Please refer to the Financial Counselor for a list of covered benefits.

This health discount is available for all residents and non-residents who visit our clinics in the Togiak Sub-Region (Togiak, Manokotak, Twin Hills, Goodnews and Platinum) or the Southern Region Sub-Region (Chignik Bay, Chignik Lagoon, Chignik Lake, and Perryville), and Kanakanak regions. This discount is based on your income level.

The sliding fee discount for health services is only applicable at the clinics in the sub-region. If you have been referred by a health provider to another health care facility outside the sub-regions, then your discount will not be applicable. Pharmaceuticals are also discounted, however all discounted meds have to be at the clinic in the Togiak or Chignik sub-regions, not special ordered.
