Medical Baseline Allotment is not a discount program. There is no discount provided on your energy statement.
Most residential customers receive an allotment of energy every month at the lowest price available on their rate.* This is called the baseline allowance. Customers who are eligible for the Medical Baseline Program receive an additional allotment of electricity and/or gas per month (approximately 500 kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electricity and/or 25 therms of gas per month). This helps ensure that more energy to support qualifying medical devices is available at a lower rate.
It is important to note that approval of your Medical Baseline Program application still requires you to continue paying your monthly PG&E bill. Nonpayment can result in the disconnection of your utility services.
Visit the Apply for the Medical Baseline Program page for more details, eligibility requirements and application directions.
*NOTE: If you are on a rate plan that does not have a baseline allotment, you will not receive an additional Medical Baseline allotment but will be added to our notification process for Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events.
