Do you know you are entitled to a discount when you use Medical Equipment. The electric company will help people with special needs. It is for equipment which sustains life or to give a person a way to move out into the community. This information is for California only. I can only hope the other 49 states have a similar program for you to use.

This is called a Medical Baseline Allowance to help keep your gas and electric bill down.

 Or go to Follow the steps.
(a)For your home.
(b)Income based
(c)Get extra help
(d)Customer with special needs
(2)Fill out your portion of the form and take the complete form to your medical doctor pertaining to your medical condition. (Suggestion) put a stamp on the return envelope.
(3)Have your medical doctor fill out the other half.


(4)Have the medical doctor’s office mail it in the self-addressed envelope provided by the electric company.
Requirements for a Medical Baseline Allowance:
Paraplegic, quadriplegic, hemiplegic.
Multiple sclerosis,
Comprised Immune System
Life threatening illness
Medical Equipment that qualifies in alphabetical order:
(1) Aerosol Tents
(2)Apnea Monitors
