Who They Are:
InterFaith Health Clinic patients are those working without insurance. Many of our patients are employed by hotels, restaurants and salons. They are temporary employees or are recently hired and on a probationary period. Our patients are also people who lack supplemental policies covering medication. Without InterFaith, these patients could not afford doctor's visits or necessary medication.
InterFaith patients have no medical insurance and are not eligible for TennCare. Please call the clinic at 865.546.7330 to see if you meet the financial guidelines.
Sliding Fee Scale:
InterFaith is not a free clinic. Patients are charged according to a sliding fee scale based on the number of people in the household and the total household income. The sliding fee scale ranges from 10% to 50%. Most patients fall at the 10% level of the scale. For example, a four-person household earning between $5,400 and $21,385 per year would fall at the 10% level. The average visit costs the clinic $55, while most patients pay $15. The difference is made up with donations to the clinic.
