Financial Assistance

 

As you face hospitalization, tests or procedures, it is important that you understand our Financial Assistance Policy in case you have concerns about paying for your medical care. Based on your eligibility and income level, Wamego Health Center may discount your entire bill or a portion of your bill and will help you make payment arrangements for any remaining balance due.

Eligibility

•  Based on income level for persons who do not have private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare.
•  Extends to individuals who face financial hardships paying outstanding balances that are the patient's
   responsibility.
•  Applies to all services except elective procedures (such as cosmetic, nonacute services).
Please Note
•  If you do not have health benefits, emergency care will always be given regardless of your ability to pay.

   you to make payment arrangements.
