Financial assistance

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 or underinsured. This is a summary of the Scheurer Hospital Financial Assistance Policy (FAP).

Financial assistance eligibility

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.

Eligibility Requirements

Financial assistance is generally determined by the Financial Assistance Committee. If you have sufficient insurance coverage or assets available to pay for your care, you may not be eligible for financial assistance. Please refer to the full policy for a complete explanation and details.
