What is Eligibility and why would I need it?
Financial Eligibility Determination is offered to clients to determine if a sliding fee scale based on household income is applicable. Our staff can determine your cost of medical care through the health department and may suggest other services and programs that you may not be aware of.
What do I need to bring?
To determine eligibility, you will need to bring the following documents to your interview:
- IDENTIFICATION - Driver's License or other picture identification for applicant, spouse, and minor children.
- PROOF OF RESIDENCY - Current utility bill (water, phone, electric) or lease/rent paperwork (receipt/agreement).

If you are unemployed, you will need to provide a notarized “Statement” or “Letter of Support” from the person who is paying or helping to pay your expenses stating when you became unemployed and detailing how you are being supported.
