About OhioHealth

We are pleased to offer charity care and medical financial assistance to patients with limited resources and inadequate medical insurance coverage. Eligibility is determined by total family income/assets. The patient is encouraged to apply for other assistance available to pay hospital charges (Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance) before being discharged.

OhioHealth's charity care policy

OhioHealth is a family of not-for-profit, faith-based hospitals and healthcare organizations. In Columbus, we have a unique healthcare system where all of the not-for-profit hospitals provide high quality care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. This system allows OhioHealth to provide one of the most compassionate charity care policies to individuals and families who cannot pay for medically necessary healthcare services they receive at our facilities.

OhioHealth's charity care policy includes:

  • Substantial charity care guidelines that provide free care for individuals and families who earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
  • Sliding scale fees to provide substantially discounted care for individuals and families who are between 200 and 400 percent of the Federal poverty level.
  • Hardship policy for those patients who would not otherwise qualify for charity care but have unique circumstances.
