Financial Assistance Program


"...Baptist Health is dedicated to providing high-quality, cost-effective, compassionate services to all...including, as permitted by its resources, charity care to those in need."  -- Baptist Health Mission Statement

As a faith-based organization, we are serious about our mission to help those in need. We provide free care to people who have no health insurance and who qualify for our financial assistance program.

Uninsured patients may qualify for discounts depending upon family income. Certain geographical residence requirements may apply. Charity care assistance is available only for medically necessary services. Amounts due under the financial assistance program are limited to amounts generally billed to individuals with health insurance.

The criteria we use for determining financial assistance eligibility are reviewed annually. The criteria may be revised upward or downward by the Baptist Health governing board which consists entirely of community volunteers.
