Eligibility Services

About Our Services

If you are having trouble paying for medical care, our team may be able to help you get health coverage from federal, state or county programs. We start with a screening process that uses a questionnaire designed to identify programs that may help cover your medical bills.

Once the screening is completed and a program is identified, we work with you to gather any information and documentation required, as well as complete any applications necessary to get you the needed funding.

Best of all – our services are free of charge!
