Patient Financial Assistance

St. Joseph Health (SJH), is committed to providing quality care to all our patients, regardless of ability to pay. No one should have to delay seeking needed medical care because they lack health insurance, or cannot afford to pay the cost of care.

Our Patient Financial Assistance Program helps make quality health care available to everyone in our community, by providing free or discounted care to eligible patients. This includes those who lack health insurance and cannot afford to pay their hospital bill, as well as patients who do have insurance, but are unable to pay the portion of their bill that insurance doesn’t cover.

Some patients may also qualify for government assistance. If you believe you might be eligible for our program, or need help applying for a government-sponsored program, one of our financial services representatives can help. Please select your hospital from the list below for more information.

Remember that access to necessary health care is not affected by your eligibility for financial assistance. We are committed to treating all those who seek our care.
