Patient Financial Assistance


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.

New Start Date for Walking for Wellness

Posted on: September 21, 2017

Walking for Wellness at the Jacksonville High School Bowl returns for another season of exercise and fellowship Monday, Oct. 2. The Walking for Wellness program provides a safe place in which to get walking exercise when weather conditions make walking outside unpleasant or dangerous. The program is open 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day Jacksonville School District 117 is in session. The program is closed during school holidays (including Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation) and any day school is not in session. On average, 75 people walk at the JHS Bowl each day the program is open—resulting in about 6,400 “encounters” with community members during the five months each year that Walking for Wellness is in session. Walking for Wellness is also offered year-round at First Christian Church, 2106 S. Main, in South Jacksonville. The church is open to walkers Monday-Friday 12:30 to 3 p.m. Walkers there should use the south entrance. There is no cost to participate in Walking for Wellness. Registration is not required. For additional details on Walking for Wellness, please call Passavant’s Marketing and Communications Department, 245-9541, extension 3129.
