Financial Assistance for Patients and Families

Resources to Help Pay Your Healthcare Costs

Charity care and medical financial assistance is offered to patients with limited or no resources and inadequate medical insurance coverage. Eligibility is determined by family income. Patients are encouraged to apply for other financial assistance available to pay hospital charges (Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance) before being discharged. Our not-for-profit hospitals provide high quality care to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.

OhioHealth's Charity Care Policy

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

In many cases, OhioHealth offers interest-free loans for up to one year to assist patients. In addition, OhioHealth has an uninsured discount policy for individuals without insurance who do not qualify for charity care.
