St. Joseph Health Financial Assistance Program
The St. Joseph Health Financial Assistance Program helps to make our health care services available to everyone in our community needing emergent or medically necessary care. This includes people who do not have health insurance and are unable to pay their hospital bill, as well as patients who do have insurance but are unable to pay the portion of their bill that insurance does not cover. In some cases, eligible patients will not be required to pay for services; in others, they may be asked to make partial payment.
Part of our mission is to provide quality care to all our patients, regardless of their 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. This is why we have a financial assistance program for eligible patients.
If you have questions, or would like to receive this information by mail, contact us at 800-378-4189.
No person eligible for financial assistance under our financial assistance policies will be charged more for emergency or medically necessary hospital care than the amounts general billed to people with insurance covering such care. Understand how the amounts generally billed are calculated.
