Financial Assistance & Billing Policies
In accordance with our Financial Assistance Policy (see reference below), all uninsured patients who have not been approved for Medicaid or Charity Care receive financial assistance at Englewood Hospital. These patients are billed a percentage of their actual charges at a “discounted rate” that greatly reduces the amount of the bill that the patient will have to pay. An uninsured patient will not be charged more than the discounted rate for emergency or other medically necessary care.
An uninsured patient does not need to apply for assistance because all uninsured patients automatically qualify and are billed at the discounted rate described above. There is no qualifying criteria other than the patient having no insurance and the service provided being emergent or medically necessary.
