At The Center for Health Care Services, YOU are a VIP – Very Important Patient! And to help make your Patient Experience even better, we have developed numerous Patient Perks to get you on the fast track to where you want to be. As our VIP, you can now take full advantage of these Patient Perks:
VIA Bus Tickets
We know finding reliable transportation to and from appointments can be challenging. Let CHCS help get you there! Each ticket includes 1 full fare ride and 1 transfer (2 buses total).
Conditions apply. Ask your case manager or front office staff for more information.
Client Benefit Office
Are you interested in applying for third-party benefits, or do you need legal representation for an upcoming disability case? Put our Client Benefit Office (CBO) to work for you! The CBO team is committed to helping you obtain, retain and maintain disability benefits including Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), Medicare and Medicaid, and will serve as your legal appointment on a pro bono basis.
VIP members may be referred to the CBO by their case manager, or self-refer to the onsite Client Benefits Specialist at Harvard Place, Northwest Clinic, Mental Health & Specialty Programs at the Packard Building (Packard), and Paul Elizondo Community Mental Health Clinic (Zarzamora).
