Plain Language Summary of Financial Assistance Policy

Scheurer Hospital is committed to providing health care services to patients who are unable to pay for such care. You may be eligible for financial assistance if you are not insured, underinsured, or do not qualify for governmental assistance such as Medicare or Medicaid. This is a summary of the Scheurer Hospital Financial Assistance Policy (FAP).

Financial Assistance

Eligibility for financial assistance is based on multiple factors, including insurance coverage, other sources of payment and income (Federal Poverty Level guidelines used to determine potential financial assistance offered).

Financial assistance is offered to patients who are uninsured, underinsured, as well as experiencing temporary financial hardship. Partial or full financial assistance may be granted based on a patient's ability to pay the billed charges.

Patients must comply with the application process, as well as completing the application process for all available sources of assistance, including Medicare or Medicaid Assistance.
