Patient Financial Assistance
No one should delay seeking needed medical care because they lack health insurance. At Passavant Area Hospital our Mission is to provide excellent care with compassion and commitment regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.
Anyone who identifies themselves as financially unable to pay all or part of their medical care will be eligible to apply for financial assistance. Individuals meeting the hospital’s financial assistance guidelines will be granted free care or substantially reduced fees consistent with the individual’s financial resources.
The hospital utilizes the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) guidelines as published annually in the Federal Register. Patients with a household income below 200 percent of the FPL, and without other substantial financial resources, and not eligible for Medicaid or other coverage, will be granted free care. Patients with a household income below 350 percent of the FPL, and without other substantial financial resources, and not eligible for Medicaid or other coverage, will be granted a discount from their bill.
In fiscal year 2010, as a non-profit facility, Passavant Area Hospital provided $11.8 million in charges in charity care and bad debts.
