Financial Assistance for Uninsured Patients
Methodist Hospital offers many forms of financial relief for patients without
healthcare insurance (“uninsured”) who need emergency or non-elective
services. We have financial counselors available to evaluate your eligibility
for various local and state programs, including county assistance and Medicaid.
Methodist Hospital has a financial assistance policy that provides free
hospital care for patients who have received emergency treatment, do not
meet the qualifications for Medicaid and whose income is less than 350
percent of the federal poverty level. To qualify for this free care, you
must complete a financial assistance application and provide documents
to support your income.

For patients who do not meet the financial assistance policy criteria and
will be expected to pay for services out of pocket, Methodist Hospital
offers a discount similar to that received by managed-care health plans.
All uninsured patients (except those receiving cosmetic procedures and
certain “package” procedures) will be given a discount. All
pricing estimates posted under the “Uninsured” insurance type
already reflect the hospital’s uninsured discount.
