Help Paying Your Bill

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 determine your eligibility for Medicare, Medi-Cal, or other government assistance in paying your medical bills. Patients’ ineligible for government assistance may still qualify for the Financial Assistance Program, discounts, or charity programs available through Hoag Hospital.
