Need help paying for your care? Ask us about our Silding-Fee Scale. CHCB offers a Sliding-Fee Scale to help income eligible uninsured and insured patients pay for their care. If you don’t have health insurance or other benefits, CHCB offers you the assistance you need to explore different state programs and services. CHCB staff is available to help you apply for Medicaid insurance, food stamps, Ladies First, and many other programs that can help you stay healthy, housed and stable.
Reach Out and Read
Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a national nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud in pediatric exam rooms across the nation. Doctors and nurses know that growing up healthy means growing up with books. The ROR program provides the tools to help promote children's developmental skills and later school success.
