If you or a loved one do not have insurance coverage, but need care, it can be stressful. However, there are alternate funding and payment options offered at Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett. Our staff will work with you to identify your options. Some of these options include:
Medical Eligibility Program
The Medical Eligibility Program is a hospital service provided to you at no cost. You may qualify for government programs which pay for all or part of your hospital and medical expenses. If you are under 21 or over 65 years old, have children in the household, are pregnant, potentially disabled or have been a Victim of Crime, you may qualify. Our hospital Patient Advocates will assist you with the application process.
If you don’t qualify for government programs, but don’t have the means to pay for your hospital expenses, you may be able to receive charity care. You may qualify for hospital financial assistance if your household income is below 200 percent of the federal poverty limit. To be considered for this assistance program, you will be required to provide information on your household finances through a confidential financial application. Documentation will be requested to verify your circumstances in order to determine eligibility. Please contact the Financial Assistance Center at (888) 233-7868, Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (PST) for additional information.
Uninsured Discount Program
If you’re uninsured, you’re eligible for our compact with uninsured discounts. Our Saint Francis Patient Advocates will assist you with understanding the rules of eligibility for the Uninsured Discount Program. To contact a Patient Advocate, call (901) 820-7070.
