Welcome to Katahdin Valley Health Center
Since 1974, Katahdin Valley Health Center (KVHC) has provided high quality, cost effective primary health care services to community members throughout the Katahdin Region. Our health centers are very much like private physicians’ offices where a person calls to schedule an appointment for a variety of reasons to be seen by a medical or dental provider within a timely manner. This is where the similarity ends. KVHC does not discriminate based on one’s ability to pay. Our fees are low and we offer significant discounts to low income, uninsured or under-insured citizens. We also maintain agreements with other agencies to provide further discounts for their services. We honor most insurance plans and can enroll in new ones, if necessary. Unlike a private physician’s office, if your household income qualifies under federal guidelines, you could be eligible for reduced fees – perhaps as little as $10 for an entire visit.
