Hoag's Financial Assistance and Charity Care
Our mission as a nonprofit, faith-based hospital is to provide the highest
quality health care services to the communities we serve.
What is the Patient Financial Assistance Program?
Hoag Hospital’s Financial Counseling Department offers free financial
screenings for people who do not have health insurance and cannot pay
their hospital bill, as well as patients who do have insurance, but are
unable to pay their portion of the bill that insurance does not cover.
Our Financial Counselors will review your eligibility for Medicare, Healthy
Families Program, Medi-Cal, or other coverage offered through the California
Health Benefit Exchange, California Children’s Services program,
other state- or county-funded health coverage, or charity care. If you
already have coverage through one of these programs please notify our
Financial Counselors immediately. Patients ineligible for government assistance
may still qualify for discount or charity programs available through Hoag Hospital.
