Financial Assistance

A new session of Pediatric Weight Control Program classes will begin soon. Please call Cindy Zedeck, MA, Program Director at (650) 725-4424 or email for information and to enroll.
The Pediatric Weight Control Program has limited financial assistance available to cover full or partial program fees.  
Families requesting financial assistance are required to complete a financial assistance application. The Patient Financial Advocacy Department will conduct a confidential review of the information provided to determine if the family qualifies for financial assistance for up to 100% of the charges.
The total program fees will be reduced for families who qualify for partial assistance. Families who receive partial assistance will be required to pay the remaining amount in full prior to the start of program.
Families who qualify for full assistance will receive 100% coverage of the total fees. These families are required to make a deposit prior to their first session. They will receive a full refund of their deposit by regularly attending and completing the PPWCP.
