Do you need help paying your medical bill?
Carle Financial Assistance Program,
Carle HRHC Financial Assistance Program, and
Carle Illinois Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount Program
At Carle, we believe that the cost of healthcare should not stop anyone from receiving necessary care. Our patients may be able to receive free or discounted care through one of our financial assistance programs.
Completing a financial assistance application will help Carle determine if you can receive free or discounted services.
Here are some general guidelines about the program:
- Eligibility is based on your household's adjusted gross income as reported on the prior year's Federal Tax Return and family size. If you are claimed as a dependent on another's Federal Tax Return, you will need to submit their Federal Tax Return as well.
- We will approve and apply discounts only after all third-party payments have been received.
- Before granting discounted care, we may ask you to apply for public assistance. Carle's Case Management department will be happy to help you fill out application forms.
- Discounts will extend for one year from the date of approval. To continue to receive financial assistance, a new application must be submitted yearly.
- These programs are open to new and existing patients who meet certain residency requirements.
- Uninsured hospital patients who meet certain requirements may qualify for an uninsured discount through Carle's Illinois Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount Program and your qualified hospital expenses may be limited to 25% of your annual gross income.
- Carle staff will review your application and if approved, match you with the assistance program that is best for you.
