CHAS Health Sliding Fee Discount Program & Good Faith Estimates
The mission of CHAS Health is to provide quality care regardless of your ability to pay. CHAS Health offers a discount program to patients that can reduce the cost of your care. If your household income qualifies you may receive reduced fees based on your application and proof of income. Household size is the number of individuals inside or outside of the household, including the applicant, who are at least 50% dependent upon the family income being reported on the application.
How much you will pay will depend on your income. We offer discounts off of regular charges based on a person’s income and the number of people in their household. When you visit CHAS Health, our staff will help you determine which sliding fee discount category you belong to.
To Apply for the Sliding Fee Discount Program you must:
- Make an appointment with a Patient Resources Coordinator (PRC) who will assist you in reviewing your insurance options.
- Fill out the CHAS Health’s Sliding Fee Discount Program Application.
- Give CHAS Health proof of your estimated current annual income:
- Pay stubs, recent tax return, unemployment statements, SSI letter, child support statements, letter from employer, L&I award letter, bank statement, or
- Signed Self-Declaration of Income
- Proof of income is required every year to continue to qualify for the Sliding Fee Discount Program. You are encouraged to fill out a new sliding fee application if your household size changes, or your monthly income changes by at least $150 and the change is expected to continue for at least two months.
