The Charity Letter Program
The Charity Letter Program is designed specifically for persons who are uninsured or underinsured requiring the need for health care services. This program works closely with Federally Qualified Health Centers (Section 330 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act 42 United States Code Section 254a) that provide preventative healthcare services to qualified persons. The Federally Qualified Health Centers are provided oversight by the Bureau of Primary Health Care and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
The Community Resource Center provides charity letters for persons that meet specific criteria and must provide specific documentation to qualify for the program. Each applicant must provide a verified income or supported verified income (i.e. pay check, unemployment compensation, SSI/SSDI/SSA income, U.S. bank deposit statement, ACCESS Award Letter).This statement is used to qualify the person of income or a supported income by a spouse, family member or friend.
If none of these apply to the applicant than zero income letter may be generated by Community Resource Center and the letter must be notarized. The Community Resource Center will provide the zero income letter for its patrons.
