What Is Covered?
TRH provides 100% financial assistance/charity care for appropriate Hospital-based services and medically necessary care to eligible patients that fall within 300% of the federal poverty level and who complete an application for financial assistance/charity care.
How to Apply
Any patient may apply to receive financial assistance/charity care. A patient seeking financial assistance/charity care must provide supporting documentation specified in the application, unless Three Rivers Hospital indicates otherwise. The application form may be obtained in person, by telephone, or printed after clicking on the “Download Application” button above.
Coverage assistance: If you are without health insurance, you may be eligible for other government and community programs. We can help you discover whether these programs (including Medicaid and Veterans Affairs benefits) can help cover your medical bills. We also can help you apply for these programs.
Uninsured Discounts: Three Rivers Hospital offers a discount for patients who may not have health insurance coverage. Please contact us about our discount program.
After your insurance company processes the bill, any balance for amounts owed by you is due within 30 days. The balance can be paid in any of the following ways: automatic credit card, payment plan, cash, check, online bill pay or credit card. To make a payment online, click here.
If you need a longer period of time to pay your balance, you can enroll in a 12- to 36-month HELP Payment Plan through Help Financial. Regardless of the term you choose, your HELP Payment Plan will carry a 0.0% APR.
