Financial Assistance Policy – Plain Language Summary

Financial Assistance Offered

Mammoth Hospital —offers financial assistance through its Financial Assistance Policy to patients unable to pay for emergency or medically necessary care.

Eligibility Requirements and Assistance Offered

Eligibility for financial assistance is based on multiple factors, including the nature of the condition and care required, insurance coverage or other sources of payment, income (Federal Poverty Level guidelines used to determine the amount of financial assistance offered), family size, assets, and any special consideration the patient or physician would like to have considered.

Financial assistance is offered to patients who are uninsured and underinsured. Partial or full financial assistance will be granted based on a patient’s ability to pay the billed charges.

Patients must fully comply with the application process, including submitting tax returns, bank statements and pay stubs, as well as completing the application process for all available sources of assistance, including governmental programs or through Covered California.

How to Apply for Assistance

The patient or any person involved in the care of the patient, including a family member or provider, can express financial concerns at any point during the patient’s care. The patient or responsible party will then be encouraged to complete a financial assistance application.

Financial assistance is limited to medical care provided at a Mammoth Hospital and does not include Physician Clinic visits. Mammoth Hospital will uphold the confidentiality and dignity of each patient, and any information submitted for consideration of financial assistance will be treated as protected health information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
