TriHealth Financial Assistance Policy (FAP) 

Summary

TriHealth provides eligible patients with partially or fully discounted medically necessary acute hospital services, whether emergent, inpatient, or outpatient. Patients seeking financial assistance must complete a Financial Assistance Policy Application and be approved to receive these discounts. 

Eligibility Requirements

  1. Free Care. To be considered for free care, you must: 
    1. be a resident of Ohio, 
    2. have a family income at or below 100% of the Federal Income Poverty Guidelines, 
    3. complete a Financial Assistance Policy Application, and
    4. meet the eligibility requirements of the Ohio Department of Medicaid's Hospital Care Assurance Program. 
  2. Charity Care.  Eligibility for charity care, which discounts between 70% and 100%, as determined by a sliding scale, will be considered for those who are uninsured, underinsured, ineligible for any governmental health care benefit program, and unable to pay for their care, based upon financial need. 
  3. Medical Indigence. If your medical bills for covered services exceed 200% of your family income, after taking into account all other discounts, you may receive an additional 60% discount on medical bills; provided the discount is great enough so that you will not be personally responsible for paying more for eligible services than the amount generally billed to health insurance carriers for emergency or other medically necessary care. 
  4. Other Charitable Discounts. In its discretion, TriHealth may provide other forms of financial assistance to eligible individuals in accordance with the Financial Assistance Policy, including uninsured discounts, underinsured discounts, discounts for eligible services provided in select TriHealth clinics, including certain obstetrics services.
