How do I Qualify for the Sliding Scale?

Whitefoord will help you apply for the Sliding Scale. You may download and complete the application before your appointment and bring it with you. You may also bring the following information to your appointment and complete the form in our offices.

  • A copy of page 1 of your most recent federal income tax return (Form 1040 or 1040A) and a copy of recent wage statements, unemployment or pay stubs a statement/letter from your employer showing year to date earnings can be substituted for pay stubs if one is not available.
  • A copy of your current driver’s license or current utility bill with your name and street address or other legal document is required to prove your identity.

This information is only used for determining your identity and is held in strict confidence.

Once approved, the sliding fee reduction will be good for one year or whenever your income and/or family size changes. If you continue to receive services, you may be asked to re-apply.

What happens if I don’t provide the documentation?

We will compute your sliding fee discount based on your information provided and you will be asked to send in the required information within one week.

Without this documentation, you will receive a bill for the full amount of the charges, which are due within 10 days from the date of service. If you need a return visit to our clinics in the future, we will require that documentation be on file to continue qualifying for the sliding fee discount. If the required documentation is not on file, you will be charged our usual charges for the services provided. Qualifying must be updated on an annual basis or whenever your income and/or family size changes.
