Financial assistance

You may be eligible for financial assistance if you:

  • Live in Fairfax County or in the cities of Fairfax or Falls Church.
  • Have limited or no health insurance.
  • Are not eligible for Medicaid.
  • Demonstrate financial need with proper documentation.

Ability to pay

The CSB provides a basic subsidy of its fees based on the Ability to Pay Scale. The cost-sharing percentage is determined by income and household size, as reflected in your most recent financial documentation. Certain services and in unique circumstances are not applicable to the Ability to Pay scale and are not subject to be subsidized.

Please ask for a copy of the most current Ability to Pay Scale to determine your cost-sharing percentage.

Payment options

Don't let your payments fall behind! Delinquent accounts may be placed for collection. Instead, speak with CSB billing staff about a payment plan or supplemental fee subsidy.

Should your account be past due or turned over to a collection agency, you will be subject to the full amount outstanding plus any applicable collection agency fees. Collection agency fees can range from 20%-30% more than your original balance.

Affordable Care Act

You can obtain the necessary coverage through your job, through a government program such as Medicaid or Medicare, through the health insurance marketplace in Virginia, or directly from an insurance company. Ask to speak with a CSB Benefits Specialist about your options.

Annual review of fees

Fees are reviewed and established annually by the CSB Board of Directors and submitted to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax and Falls Church City Councils. Your account will be reviewed annually so that the most accurate and current information is used to determine your fees.
