Healthcare Access Program

Have you recently lost your job or had your hours cut? Have you lost your health coverage? Do your prescriptions cost too much? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you may qualify for medical, vision, dental, prescription and mental health services.

The Healthcare Access Program (HAP) reduces the amount you owe for services and/or medicines based on your income. For some people there will be no cost. Our team will assist you in completing an application and turning in any documents needed to determine if you are eligible. The information you share will be kept confidential and will only be used for providing you care.

Eligible patients who are County residents and who have incomes below 650% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible for discounts for medically necessary services or supplies from the County of Santa Clara healthcare providers. Here is the 2022 Federal Poverty Level guidelines.

Note: Please also see this chart for health coverage eligibility information. These charts are provided for informational purposes only. Patients with incomes up to 138% of the FPL may be eligible for Medi-Cal. If ineligible for Medi-Cal, patients with incomes up to 600% of the FPL may qualify for a subsidized Covered California health plan.
