2021 Subsidies

After a great deal of discussion during our Board of Directors Zoom meeting and review of our financial statements for 2020 and review of our financial commitments already in place for 2021 grants, the Board has decided that we cannot offer any additional subsidies at this time. We have worked with Wisdom Health to get a 15% discount on the cost of testing. This discount is available to CHF members only and will be available through a code/link obtained from the Assistant Treasurer. This 15% will still reduce your costs for Optimal Selection, DMS, and PRA testing. We are hoping that 2021 will be a better year and in the future we will once again be able to offer some form of subsidy to help our members with health testing.
