The information below summarizes our FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS.
• Income is Up to 180% of Federal Poverty Guidelines
After a financial assessment of the patient’s income has been completed, the patient’s bill will be reduced by 100% if their income level is at or below 180% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines and they are a resident of the State of Illinois.
• Presumptive Charity Care
Graham Health System has a process to validate the patient’s ability to pay, and in the event that the patient does not contact us, nor apply for financial assistance, we may extend the patient charity care for that episode of care. This applies only to patients who do not inform us of insurance coverage.
Financial Assistance Program
Graham Health System follows the poverty guidelines as published by the Department of Health and Human Services. These guidelines can be found at Departmentofhealthandhumanservices.
