St. Joseph Medical Center understands that paying for emergency or other
medically necessary medical care can be difficult, particularly for patients
who lack health insurance. As part of our commitment to our patients,
we provide financial assistance to patients who are underinsured or uninsured
and who satisfy certain requirements. Our Financial Counselors work hard
to help patients address their financial responsibilities, and they will
help you find financial solutions that can help cover your cost of care.
The St. Joseph Medical Center Financial Assistance Program applies to uninsured
or underinsured patients who come to our facilities for emergency or other
medically necessary treatment. This program provides financial relief
to patients who qualify based on a comparison of their financial resources
and/or income to Federal Poverty Level guidelines. To qualify for assistance,
patients will be asked to complete a Financial Assistance Application.
If you have questions regarding our program or application, please call
816-943-5617 or 816-943-5947.
Following are standard charge lists for certain procedures. However, the
actual amount paid by any patient varies widely and primarily depends
on the type of insurance, if any, that the patient has. For uninsured
and underinsured patients who may qualify, there are financial assistance
and discount programs available through our hospital, and staff who can
assist with eligibility for government programs such as Medicaid.
