– No payment will be expected from patients who meet the criteria for
charity assistance. The main
requirements for charity assistance are as follows:

non-governmental HMO or insurance company.)
patients in need of financial assistance are required to provide accurate
and complete information to the Hospital and, when possible, to enroll in
a publicly sponsored insurance program. Uninsured patients who do not
provide income verification will automatically qualify for a 50% discount
More than 8 persons add $4,060 for each additional person.
