Financial assistance is available for eligible patients who cannot pay for part or all of the care that they receive from the Hospital. This summary briefly describes when financial assistance is available and how to apply for it. For comprehensive information, please review the Hospital’s full Financial Assistance-Discount and Charity Care Policy (Financial Assistance Policy).
Charity Care: Patients who earn less than 200% of the federal poverty level and do not have sufficient assets to pay their bill may be eligible for free care.
Low Income Financial Assistance: Patients who earn less than 350% of the federal poverty level and do not have insurance or have high medical bills may be eligible for a discounted rate. Individuals who are eligible for discounted care may negotiate a payment plan with the Hospital and will be charged at no more than the Medicare rate (or the Medi-Cal rate, if there is no rate established by Medicare).
How to Apply
An individual can apply for financial assistance by completing the Financial Assistance Application (Application) and submitting it to the Patient Financial Services Department. An applicant may be asked to provide recent pay stubs or income tax returns to document family income. An applicant for charity care may also be asked to provide information about his or her assets and to authorize the Hospital to obtain account information from financial or commercial institutions to verify that information.
