Discount Payment Policy
The Hospital offers a Discount Payment Plan. If an uninsured patient's family income is at or below 350% of the Federal Poverty Level based on family size, the patient's bill may be reduced. This generally represents a sizable discount for the patient.
An insured patient with family income at or below 350% of the current Federal Poverty Level based on family size, and having high out-of-pocket medical expenses may also qualify for a discount.
To apply and qualify for either discount, a completed Financial Assistance application needs to be reviewed and approved by the Hospital. The Financial Assistance applications and copies of the Discount Payment Plan policy may be requested by contacting Patient Financial Services at 530 740-1910 or the Hospital's Financial Counselors.
The Hospital offers a Financial Assistance Program. If a patient's family income is at or below 200% of the current Federal Poverty Level based on family size, or if the amount owed exceeds certain income limits, the patient may be eligible for full or partial financial assistance. Financial assistance is a final option after all other payor sources have been denied. Contact Patient Financial Services at 530 740-1910 for a Financial Assistance application and/or a copy of the Financial Assistance policy.
