Payment and Insurance


Pillars Community Health takes some private insurance as well as Medicaid and self-pay. Some services are offered free of charge; others are offered on a sliding fee scale (payment based on income). We do not turn clients and patients away if they cannot afford to pay.

The Affordable Care Act is still law and may apply to your services. If you have questions about what you may owe or want to discuss your ability to pay, please call 708-PILLARS (708-745-5277).
