Financial AssistanceFINANCIAL ASSISTANCE POLICY
Financial Assistance Offered
Financial assistance to eligible uninsured individuals, as well as underinsured individuals receiving emergency or other non-elective medically necessary services covered by the financial assistance policy, based on financial need. Compass Memorial Healthcare uses the Department of Health and Human Services Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG) to determine eligibility for assistance. Individuals with a household income level that does not exceed 300% on the FPG will be considered eligible for assistance.
Amount Generally Billed
All uninsured individuals and individuals that qualify for financial assistance will not be charged more than the amount we generally bill patients with Medicare coverage for emergency or other medically necessary care.
