Income Guidelines / % Pay Schedule 2006
Based on Federal Poverty Guidelines
The Federal Poverty Guidelines are updated yearly and published
in the Federal Register by the US Department of Health and Human Services. Our
sliding fee scale is based upon these guidelines. The sliding fee scale is used
so there is no financial barrier to family planning services for low income
The Family Size is the economic unit, or number of people,
supported by the family income.
How Much Will it Cost?
The NM Department of Health Family Planning Program receives money from State and
Federal funds. Because of this you pay according to your income and family size.
You will be asked to bring a tax form, check stub, note from
your employer or other written proof of family income. If you forget your
documentation, you will still receive services.
We are glad to accept donations to the program. This money will
be used to provide services for low-income clients.
