Financial Assistance Policy


Summary

Blue Mountain Hospital District offers financial assistance for emergency and medically necessary services provided and billed through Blue Mountain Hospital District. This assistance is provided to patients demonstrating financial need and meeting the eligibility criteria of the policy. This assistance is based upon verifiable total household income being 200% below the federal poverty level (FPL) guidelines.

Exceptional financial circumstances:
If your total household income exceeds the maximum 200% of the FPL, yet you have supplied additional documentation to support the hardship your medical condition has caused for you and your family, you will be considered on a case-by-case basis for assistance.

Services covered by a financial assistance application:
An approved Financial Assistance Program application will cover charges for emergency and medically necessary care provided and billed through Blue Mountain Hospital District. We may consider charges for services provided after our date of approval for up to three months without requiring a new application to be completed.

Getting Started:
You may obtain a Financial Assistance Program application and view our policies relating to Financial Assistance, Payment, and Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) guidelines for the District's Emergency Department Services below. If you need assistance please contact Pam Wilson at 541-575-4156.
