        1. Complete the enrolment form 

          • During this step you will need: 

          1. Account number delivered by email from IH

          2. After the username and password are created online, please download the IHMVCU Mobile app from the app store to login to your account through the mobile platform.

          3. On the bottom of the app page:  https://www.ihmvcu.org/banking/spend-save/online-banking/enroll-online-branch There are a few videos to help you become familiar with mobile banking through the IHMVCU app.  

      3. ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER: Many employees set up automatic bank transfer into the CHR/IH bank created for your use.

      4. To set up automatic Electronic Funds Transfer, the bank will assist but cannot do it for you. 

        1. For assistance with automatic Electronic Funds Transfer: 

        2. Call IHMVCU (309)793-6200 (The hours of operation are M-F 7am-7pm CST, Sat 8am-1pm CST) 

        3. Select option 3 (speak with an IH team member) 

        4. Then select option 2 (online banking and bill support) 

        5. Ask for help with External Funds Transfer set up.  

      5. Have your account information ready. 

      6. You must list Community HealthCare Resources as the recipient on all Electronic Funds Transfers. As a CHR employee you are a user on the account and CHR is the account owner. 

      7. Donation depositing is the only use for this IH/CHR bank account! 

  4. Payroll Arrangements  

    1. Gusto will send you an email to complete the required information through the mobile app and set up a direct deposit for your payroll check from CHR.

    2. Gusto has a mobile app you can download for simplicity.

  5. Train to get Donations  

    1. Rounding Payments up at the front desk: https://youtu.be/ivlijiQN6b0 

      1. Q:   “Your next appointment is set for Thursday at 4pm Steph. Hey Steph, does Doctor Smith do a good job for you?”   

      2. A:   “Absolutely”   

      3. Q:   “Would you mind rounding your payment up to the nearest dollar to help deliver care to families in our community that cannot afford it?”  

      4. A: “Sure, I’d be glad to help”  

      5. Most offices experience that about 75% of patients are willing to throw change in to help others and it adds up fast. After one or two times asking, most people will say with a smile, “Jean, you don’t have to ask, just throw it in”.   

    2. Grants: You may apply for grants. All grant funds must be reported to CHR management at support@chr501.org. Failure to report grant funding withing 30 days of award will result in termination of employment.

    3. Public donation generation: There are many different avenues to generate donations in the public domain and we would love new ideas that we can share.

      1. One avenue you can pursue is your local Sam’s Club & Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart’s & Sam’s Clubs have a $1,000.00-$1,500.00 grant per entity per store for non-profit organizations. Email JBUSER@CHR501.org for more information. 

      2. Spaghetti dinner

      3. 5k run

      4. Donation hearts

  6. Complete the Employment Certification form Yearly  

    1. Go to: https://studentaid.gov/sites/default/files/public-service-application-for-forgiveness.pdf   

    2. Complete the Employment Certification form each year. When you do this, it will automatically let you know how many of your student loan payments qualify you to move towards loan forgiveness through the PSLF program.  After making 120 qualifying payments you can apply for Public Service Student Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). This is the big reward we all work towards.  

  7. Care & Education

    1. Continue to recruit qualified practitioners to deliver free or reduced fee care ($500 value minimum per month) and education (one lecture per month, per clinic). 

    2. Record the care given. (Date, CPT code and value of care given away).

    3. If you exceed the minimum that is awesome.

    4. The care given changes people's lives for generations and fulfils your public service requirement.

  9. Help other Providers  

    1. When you tell friends and help expand the free care, we deliver to the public we help you. For each practitioner you help get involved, we will subsidize a month of operational expenses (usually more as funds allow). Pay it forward and help your friends serve and get the rewards Community HealthCare Resources offers its employee providers.  

  10. Save Money through the Affiliate Program
