You are expected to pay your copayment at the time of service. You are responsible for any deductible, coinsurance or non-covered services per your insurance.
Patients who are uninured or underinsured are asked to pay at the time of service. If a patient has trouble paying in full at the time of service, he or she can meet with a Patient Representative for assistance in setting up a payment plan. Low-income patients may qualify for public assistance programs. We will connect you with one of Valley-Wide’s financial eligibility assistance team.
Financial Assistance Program Information
Valley-Wide’s financial eligibility assistance team can provide information and application assistance for the following programs listed below.

All programs are based on household size and household income.
- Sliding Fee Discount Program (SFDP):A federal program for qualified healthcare providers for households at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). The Sliding Fee Discount program bases the amount you pay for Valley-Wide services you receive on your household size and income. This program is available to everyone regardless of insurance status for dental, physical therapy, medical and behavioral health appointments. Learn more about the program here.
