If you're uninsured or have trouble paying for your health care, we may be able to help. We provide exceptional health care services to people in our communities, regardless of ability to pay.
Many of our patients have insurance or other programs to help pay for the services they receive, and in many cases, we have agreements with these insurance companies and other payors. When we have such agreements, we bill in accordance with the terms of the contracts. For patients with limited or no ability to pay, or who may need longer-term financing options, we extend a variety of financial assistance and financing measures, as noted below.
You may apply for and qualify for reduced prices or free services, depending on your eligibility, by downloading the below application, fill it out, and send it in for review. You may also apply by going on your MyChart account and click on the Financial Assistance tab under Billing.
