GCC staff are trained to listen to your concerns and provide you with the information you need to make decisions regarding your services and which services are the most appropriate. The staff will gather basic information including health insurance coverage and schedule you an appointment to meet the service provider. If you do not have insurance and you need discounted services, you should inform the admitting staff person so that arrangements can be made with you to provide the necessary documentation. GCC serves all clients regardless of inability to pay. Discounts for essential services are offered based on family size and income. For more information see our attached client handbook.
