How do you define a “family”?
A family includes the patient and others related by birth, marriage or adoption who reside together. Family also includes unrelated individuals living in the same household who are supported by (or are supporting) a family member. Foster children are not included in family size.
Households below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible to receive a discount. View the 2022 Guidelines located at the right.
