Eligibility Requirements
Our volunteers are here to serve you! We welcome all patients regardless of race, gender, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, national origin or citizenship status. If you meet our eligibility requirements, you may be eligible for services at CVVIM:

Eligibility Requirements:
► You must be a Coachella Valley resident 18 years of age or older.
Proof of residency is required, which can be a utility bill in your name, property tax bill, pay stub with your address,etc. NOTE: Speak to our intake counselor if you are unable to verify your residency through usual means.

► You do not have public insurance (MediCal or Medicare) or private insurance.
Individuals who have medical insurance, but NOT dental insurance, may be eligible to receive no-charge dental care assuming all other eligibility requirements are met. NOTE: Exceptions may be made for individuals with private medical insurance, including Covered CA plans, who cannot afford their copayment or annual deductible requirements necessary for plan participation. Speak to our intake counselor for more information.
