It is our pleasure to welcome you to Lower Lights Christian Health Center (LLCHC) – both as a patient receiving medical care, and as a partner in making this a better organization. We are currently accepting new patients, regardless of income or insurance status.
Section 1557 Non-Discrimination Notice
Lower Lights Christian Health Center complies with applicable Federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or inability to pay.

Health Insurance and Co-pays
All patients are cared for regardless of their ability to pay; however, LLCHC is not a free clinic. Ability to pay is determined by household size and income.
We accept most major health insurance plans including Medicaid, Medicare and commercial insurance. For patients without health insurance coverage, fees for services are based on a Sliding Fee Scale. All Copays/Sliding Scale Fees and Insurance Card (if applicable) must be provided at the time of service or you could be subject to rescheduling.
Patients who are experiencing fever, cough or difficulty breathing are asked to call (614)274-1455 option 1 to receive additional direction before coming to a scheduled appointment.
Need a doctor’s note to return to work?
Page 9 item 18-b of the Ohio Order states:
Actively encourage sick employees to stay home until they are free of fever (without the use of medication) for at least 72 hours (three full days) AND symptoms have improved for at least 72 hours AND at least seven days have passed since symptoms first began. Do not require a healthcare provider’s note to validate the illness or return to work of employees sick with acute respiratory illness; healthcare provider offices and medical facilities may be extremely busy and not able to provide such documentation in a timely way.
Items to Bring to Each Visit
Our doctors, nurses and staff wish to serve you with the highest level of care. To help us do this, we ask that you bring the following with you to every visit:
- Photo ID
- Proof of income
- Insurance Card
- A list of the medications you are currently taking
- Your co-pay.
- Co-pays are required for each provider service at LLCHC. For example, an additional co-pay will be required when a patient sees a doctor for a medical visit, a counselor for behavioral health care, and the dietitian for nutrition care.
Your appointment time will start when you arrive at registration. It may be 30 minutes before you see your doctor or nurse.
We ask that you be an active participant in your care by asking questions and following your treatment plans. If you follow these expectations, our doctors, nurses and staff will be able to enhance your quality of care. It is our pleasure to serve you.
