For Patients

Welcome to the Community Health Center, Inc.!

We have been keeping families in Connecticut healthy for nearly 50 years. Our patients are at the center of what we do, which is why when you’re a patient at CHC, you have a team of medical, dental, and behavioral health professionals working together to make you the healthiest you can be.

A note for patients coming to our sites:

Only the patient (and if the patient is a minor, the patient’s parent/guardian) will be allowed into the building for an appointment. Please call us if you have a fever or cough. These steps are for everyone’s health and safety – thank you for your understanding!

A note about updates to billing:

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Board of Directors decided to temporarily stop sending bills to patients who pay out of pocket for their care, understanding that jobs, income, and insurance were all very unstable because of the emergency shut-down rules. As of July 1, we will be sending bills to all patients again. Many of our patients qualify for a “sliding fee scale” discount, which is based on income and family size. If your insurance, income or family size has changed, or if you think you may need help affording your care, call us and we can help!

We believe that health care is a right, not a privilege. We want everyone, regardless of background, income, identity, or status, to have access to excellent care.
