The majority of our services are provided at no charge to verified Native Americans.
Payment is due at the time of service.
Chapa-De accepts Medi-Cal, Medicare, private insurance, CMSP, and self-pays.
Patients may qualify for Sliding Scale. Sliding Scale is a discount fee scale that is based on Federal Poverty Guidelines. Sliding Scale is for persons of low income who have absolutely no other insurance. Chapa-De has 50% or 75% Sliding Scale; this is the portion of the charges which the patient must pay.
If approved, Sliding Scale can be used for medical or dental services. Sliding Scale may not be used for certain items which may include, but are not limited to: special supplies, outside lab fees, medical supplies/devices, injections/vaccines, glasses, pharmacy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage services.
Once approved, Sliding Scale is good from the date you are approved to April 30th of the following year. Sliding Scale must be re-applied for every year with current IRS tax information.
To receive the scale discount, the discounted payment must be made the date the services are received (we do not bill Sliding Scale). Therefore, before receiving services you need to apply for Sliding Scale. If not approved, you will be responsible for 100% of the charges.
If you have medical or dental insurance, such as private insurance and CMSP, then you are not eligible for Sliding Scale.
If you are covered by Medi-Cal, you may apply for the discount for Medi-Cal non-covered services only. This should be done in advance of treatment, with pre-payments made before procedures are started and completed.
If you are covered by Medicare, you may apply for Sliding Scale for dental services only (as long as you do not have other dental insurance).
