We understand that many people cannot afford the cost of their healthcare. That’s why we make sure you know how to find financial assistance if you need it. Normally, if you choose to send your bill to your insurance company yourself or do not have insurance to cover your services, you are expected to pay for services at the time of your visit. However, if you are unable to pay your bill because of insufficient insurance coverage, no insurance coverage or limited income, we can assist you in applying for financial assistance through these sources:
- State agency programs - We'll help you determine if you qualify for a variety of state agency programs.
- Medicaid - We can help you determine whether you qualify for Medicaid benefits, and help you apply for Medicaid if you are unable to go to your local DSS office.
- Hospital discounts - You may qualify for hospital discounts on your balance owed. Based upon criteria such as your income and assets, you may be eligible to receive a 25%, 50%, 75% or a 100% discount. Mission Hospital's financial assistance policy utilizes household income guidelines published by the Health and Human Services department to determine discount eligibility. Our staff can assist you in applying for a discount.
