Comanche County Memorial Hospital understands that it can be difficult for some patients to afford to pay their medical bills. For this reason, Comanche County Memorial Hospital provides financial assistance for qualifying patients who receive emergency or other medically necessary care from Comanche County Memorial Hospital. This summary provides a brief overview of Comanche County Memorial Hospital’s Financial Assistance Policy.
Who is Eligible for Financial Assistance?
Financial assistance is generally determined by your total household income as compared to the Federal Poverty Level. Patients with family incomes less than or equal to 150% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible for a 100% charity care write-off of the portion of the charges for which you are responsible. Patients with family incomes ranging from 151% to 300% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible for discounted rates on a sliding scale. To qualify for financial assistance, patients must complete a financial assistance application, provide requested documents to verify financial need, and meet other eligibility criteria. You may be asked if you have insurance of any kind to help pay for care. You may be asked to show that insurance or a government program will not pay for care.
What Services Are Covered?
Financial Assistance is only available to emergency and other medically necessary care. These terms are defined in the Financial Assistance Policy. Elective services are not covered by the Financial Assistance Policy.
How Can I Apply?
You must apply for financial assistance by completing a written application and providing requested supporting documentation, as described in the Financial Assistance Policy and the Financial Assistance Policy application. The Financial Assistance Policy application instructions will be made available upon patient request at the time of service.
