In some cases, electric companies can give preference to prevent disconnection or establish a reconnection of utility service to individuals who rely on life support devices, such as respirators, ventilators or other medical equipment.

People with a low household income, few resources and no dental insurance or Medicaid are eligible. OPTIONS patients are primarily adults; many are the “working "poor” or elderly living on a fixed income. Fees are based on your income and certain health conditions. You must be able to pay some money at the time of each appointment. If you do not have any income or other money, you will not be able to apply.

Services may include an exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride treatment, sealants, fillings, extractions, dentures or partials.

The completed application and proof of income are returned to a local referral coordinator who determines final eligibility.  Most patients who need dental care are referred to other
community resources. A patient who is eligible for OPTIONS is matched to a nearby participating dentist.
