Financial Assistance Policy Summary

All BayCare hospitals are committed to meeting the health care needs of the communities we serve. Emergency medical care is provided to everyone, regardless of ability to pay or lack of insurance.

We realize that paying for medical bills may be difficult. If you are unable to pay yours, apply for financial assistance by completing an application with all required information. Get an application and the full Financial Assistance Policy in English or Spanish at any BayCare hospital, online at, or by calling (855) 233-1555. We may use your application to identify available health insurance including Medicaid, disability, victims of crime, COBRA, etc. It is important for the hospital and the patient to work together to solve payment issues.

Once we review your completed Financial Assistance Application, your obligations to us end if your annual household income is less than 250% of the current federal poverty level and no additional insurance payments are expected. This does not include flat rate pricing packages and cosmetic procedures. If you qualify for financial assistance, all collection efforts will stop.

PLEASE NOTE: Physician Fees are billed separately from hospital bills and are not covered under this policy. Please work directly with the physician(s) that treated you to resolve any payment issues.
