It is the policy of Heritage Valley to provide quality care in a compassionate manner regardless of the patient’s ability to pay for such services. Consistent with this policy, Heritage Valley is committed to providing necessary health care services at no charge, or reduced charges, to patients who are willing to meet his/her financial obligations, but do not have or cannot obtain adequate financial resources.
Patients expressing financial hardship are given the opportunity to apply for Charity Care. Those interested in this program are given a packet of information which contains an instruction sheet and the Charity Care Application. Based on a patient’s (or legal guardian’s) income and expenses and Federal Poverty guidelines, Charity Care may be granted for a portion, or for the total balance, of the hospital or outpatient bill.
Please contact the Patient Billing and Payment Center or download and print the attached Charity Care Application and instructions.
