It depends, but for the most part, you should ask your healthcare provider for a waiver if they feel you may have a chronic condition that’s causing significant problems for you.
A grant is usually granted to you if they think you have an acute medical condition and can get a good rate for treatment.
However, if you have chronic medical conditions, they may not have the resources to treat them.
You may also want to talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner for help to decide whether you should receive a grant.

When should I apply?
It depends on your circumstances and where you live.
If you live in a state that doesn’t have a state-wide application process, you’ll need to fill out an online application.
For example, if your state is New York, you may be able to get an online grant application from your local health department.
In addition, you might need to submit proof of your income, including a utility bill, income tax return, paycheck or bank statement, or proof of other income from a job.
For more information about how to get a state grant, go to www.healthcarefinance.gov.
If your state has a state application process but your doctor doesn’t offer you one, you can apply through your local medical board.
You’ll need the same information as above.
If that process is too slow, you could also try to get help from a healthcare provider through the Healthcare Finance Portal, which is available online at www.hsf.gov and requires you to have a healthcare plan and a phone number.
However: You’ll have to provide proof of income, health insurance, a job or other documentation.
The portal doesn’t ask for proof of residency or other residency documentation, and you’ll have two chances to claim a grant if you don’t qualify.
You can also apply to the state’s Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which allows you to receive money from the federal government for treatment or for the cost of care.
CHIP offers grants for low-income adults, children and disabled people, which can range from $5 to $5,000.
The application is due no later than 30 days after you receive your grant.
What if I’m too young to apply?
If you’re younger than 18 and can’t afford a grant application, your best bet is to contact your local healthcare provider.
If they don’t have the money to pay for treatment, they’ll likely not accept your application.

Read your state’s healthcare law for more information on when and how to apply.
How do I file for a Grant?
In some states, you have to submit documents such as your income tax returns and bank statements.
This information is available on the Healthcare Information Institute website.
To get started, you will need to get copies of your Social Security and Medicare numbers, as well as any medical insurance information.
To apply online, you must submit a completed application to your local state-based Healthcare Finance Office, located at www://www.hsfa.gov, and to your county’s Health Information Agency, located in your county, go online to www, or call 1–800-827-8683.
