The Community Health Centers of Burlington accept all patients regardless or their insurance or financial status. Our federally funded health care program allows us to offer a wide range of services to patients through a sliding-fee scale; we also take most employment-based insurances.

For dental services, we also offer a sliding-fee scale to all income eligible dental patients that live or work in Chittenden County or the towns of North Hero, South Hero or Grand Isle.
