Patient Financial Assistance Program

At St. Joseph Hospital, we are proud of our mission to provide quality care to all our patients, regardless of ability to pay. We believe that no one should delay seeking needed medical care because they lack health insurance or are worried about their ability to pay for their care. That's why we have a Patient Financial Assistance Program that provides free or discounted services to eligible patients.

What is the Patient Financial Assistance Program?

Our Patient Financial Assistance Program helps to make our services available to everyone in our community. This includes people who don't have health insurance and can't pay their hospital bill, as well as patients who do have insurance but are unable to pay the portion of their bill that insurance doesn't cover.

In some cases, eligible patients will not be required to pay for services; in others, they may be asked to make partial payment.

Who Is Eligible?

Patients who are uninsured and do not qualify for government-sponsored insurance programs, and with family income up to 500 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines may be eligible for our program. Our financial counselors, in the admitting department or the patient financial service office, will work with you to determine if you qualify. Please remember that access to necessary healthcare is not affected by eligibility for financial assistance. St. Joseph Hospital is committed to treating all those who come to us for care.

How to Apply

We know that hospital stays can be stressful both for the patient and his or her family, so we try to make applying for the Patient Financial Assistance Program as easy as possible. We offer two ways to apply. Patients can download the Patient Financial Assistance Application in English or Spanish, print it, complete it and return it to us by mail.
