The Primary Care program ensures basic health services for adults who are uninsured, or under-insured adults who do not qualify for federal assistance programs. Primary health care is provided for those people who fall within the assistance that the Florida Department of Health in Columbia County is qualified to give.
Some of the basic services provided by the DOH - Columbia include physical examinations, cholesterol and CBC tests, diabetes and thyroid screenings as needed, and liver enzyme blood tests.
These services are provided on an ability to pay or on a sliding fee scale. Fees vary according to the service provided. No one is denied service due to an inability to pay.
