Assistance paying your bill
We realize most medical expenses are unexpected, and we are committed to providing financial counseling to those who express concern in meeting payment expectations. It is important to let us know as soon as possible if you are having difficulty paying your bill. We can help determine if you qualify for programs, such as Medical Assistance, disability, Crime Victims' Compensation and other local grants or charities.
If you do not quality for other programs and are unable to pay for medical treatment, we offer financial assistance. Call Patient Account Services at 1-844-217-9591, visit the Financial Assistance website or read our Financial Assistance Policy (PDF) for information.
To help us evaluate your eligibility for charity care, apply online through your patient portal account. You also can complete a Financial Assistance Application and return with all required information to:
Note that completing an application may not absolve you of your financial responsibility. Until your application has been reviewed and approved, you are responsible for your medical costs. Patients eligible for financial assistance will not be charged more than amounts generally billed to those who have insurance coverage for emergency or other medically necessary care. Eligible patients with insurance coverage will not be personally responsible to pay more than amounts generally billed after all payments by the health insurer have been applied.
