The Marketplace can help uninsured and under-insured individuals and families buy affordable private insurance plans. You may qualify to get help paying your monthly premium and other out-of-pocket costs, like copays and deductibles. All of the clinics listed on this site have a commitment to providing care to anyone in the Greater New Orleans area regardless of their ability to pay. These clinics accept uninsured patients and provide care based on a sliding fee scale. A sliding fee scale is based on a person’s income, and family size. Ask about exactly what you need to bring with you to apply for the sliding fee-scale when you make your appointment. Typically, you will need: a government issued ID; income information such as, a W-2 or pay stub; and your social security number.
