Patients with balances due resulting from limited or no insurance coverage may qualify for our charity care or financial assistance programs. This program is designed to assist patients who are financially indigent. A financially indigent patient is a person who is uninsured or underinsured and is accepted for care with no obligation or a discounted obligation to pay for services based on income and family size. The hospital uses poverty income guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human services to determine a person’s eligibility for care as a financially indigent patient.
In order to qualify for FRHS ’s Charity Care program, applicants must provide complete financial information to the hospital. The FRHS Patient Financial staff will be pleased to help you do this.
Medical insurance, household income and family size are the main factors considered. Copies of pay stubs, income tax returns, bill receipts, etc., may be requested at (765)827-7700.
