Low-Income Child Care

Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley provides subsidized child care services to low income families in the 7-county region. To be eligible to apply for child care services, each parent or guardian residing with the child must be working, in an approved training program, or in school a minimum of 25 hours per week. Eligibility for at-risk child care assistance is based not only on approved activity hours, but also on your family s gross income and the number of people in your household.  Eligible families are required to pay a parent share of cost that is based on their level of income, household size, and number of children in care. If you are participating in other Workforce Programs, like WIOA and Choices, you could also be eligible to receive a child care subsidy. To find out if you are eligible for these services, please contact Child Care Services at (979) 595-2801, extension 2105.

Healthpoint Clinics

There are no restrictions or eligibility requirements to receive care at HealthPoint's clinics. Per our federal status, we provide care to anyone, regardless of income, residency status, employment, health insurance coverage or ability to pay for services. You do not have to be a resident of any specific city, county or area to access our services.

 

 HealthPoint does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), religion, disability, age, gender, or sexual orientation.

Fees

HealthPoint's clinics are not free. If you are uninsured, fees for service will be based on a sliding fee scale determined by income and family size according to Federal Poverty Level guidelines.

 

On the first visit, patients who are uninsured meet with a Benefit Specialist and undergo a simple income screening process. This process identifies whether or not you or a member of your family may be eligible for healthcare assistance programs, and also determines your fee for services based on the sliding fee scale.

 http://www.healthpoint-tx.com/

  For patients who are new to HealthPoint, the first visit includes an income screening process that determines whether or not you or your family members are eligible for healthcare assistance programs such as Medicaid, CHIP, etc. If you are uninsured and are not eligible for public assistance, the income screening also determines your fee for services based on a sliding fee scale according to Federal Poverty Level guidelines.
