Financial Assistance

Eligibility and Assistance

Once you have utilized all other payment options (e.g., insurance coverage, health spending accounts, governmental assistance programs, etc.), you may be eligible for financial assistance under Baptist Health’s Financial Assistance Policy.

Here are the levels of discounts available for eligible patients during each calendar year:

Uninsured or Underinsured Discount

If you are uninsured or your insurance does not allow emergency or medically necessary care provided by a Baptist Health hospital, then you may be allowed a discount that limits your payment responsibility to the amounts generally billed to individuals who have insurance covering such care.

Full Assistance (100%)

If your family income is less than or equal to 300% of the federal poverty level, then you may be eligible for full assistance.

Partial Assistance (50%)

If your family income is between 301% and 400% of the federal poverty level, then you may be eligible for partial assistance.

How Do I Apply?

Applications and copies of the policy are available in English and Spanish. (Other translations may be available.) A copy of the full Financial Assistance Policy and an application may be obtained below:

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal program designed to help people who are 65 or older, blind, or disabled and have little or no income by providing cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter. This money can help pay hospital bills.

If you qualify for SSI, you may also qualify for Medicaid. If you have SSI and Medicare, the state will pay your Medicare premiums and copays and deductibles.
