If you do not have health insurance or you are unable to pay your hospital bill, you may qualify for Medical Assistance, Medicare or Financial Assistance. Financial Assistance may cover your inpatient and/or outpatient hospital related charges partially or in full. Applicant(s) for Financial Assistance must agree to complete the application for uncompensated care and assist hospital staff by furnishing information required to complete the Financial Assistance application.
If you have Medicare or health insurance, the Financial Assistance program will not pay for any amounts that are covered by those insurers. Applicant(s) will be expected to exhaust all other payment sources as a condition for approval. For example, you might be eligible for Medicaid or Medicare. Therefore, you will be required to apply for those programs before seeking Financial Assistance. Financial Assistance does not cover copay or deductible amounts after insurance.
