MEDICAL BASELINE ALLOWANCE
INFORMATION & APPLICATION
What is Medical Baseline Allowance?
The Medical Baseline Allowance program provides
additional natural gas for people with certain medical
conditions. It is not a discount or rebate. Customers on
this program will receive 0.822 additional therms per
day, billed at our lowest baseline rate.
Qualifications
To qualify, you or a full-time resident of your home
must require additional heat due to a qualifying medical
condition. For example, you may qualify if a resident
of your home has paraplegia, quadriplegia, hemiplegia,
multiple sclerosis, scleroderma, a compromised immune
system or a life threatening illness.
What if I pay my landlord for my natural gas?
You may qualify for Medical Baseline Allowance even
if your landlord bills you for your natural gas. The
landlord will reflect the allowance on your billing
statement.

I UNDERSTAND THAT:
1If the medical provider certifies that the resident’s
medical condition is permanent, SoCalGas will require
completion of a form self-certifying continued resident’s
eligibility for Medical Baseline Allowance every two years.
If the medical provider certifies that the residents
medical condition is not permanent, SoCalGas will require
completion of a form self-certifying continued resident’s
eligibility for Medical Baseline Allowance each year and
completion of a new application with a medical providers
certification every two years.
If the resident has a vision disability, the resident may
contact SoCalGas to request special notification when
either re-certification (to complete a new application with
a medical provider’s certification) or self-certification forms
are mailed.
SoCalGas cannot guarantee uninterrupted natural gas
service, and the resident is responsible for making
alternate arrangements in the event of a natural gas
outage.
