While the Jackson County, Mich., Board of Commissioners approved a $10 county resident fee for services at the county walk-in STD clinic at its May 21 meeting, state and county officials continue to work out the details of whether the county can deny services to individuals who cannot pay for them at the clinic. County Deputy Administrator Adam Brown said he received e-mail from the director of Local Health Services for the Michigan Department of Community Health on May 23, stating the clinic may not deny services, but can bill for them.
