If you have a question regarding the insurance coverage for your procedure or stay, we urge you to contact your insurance carrier for information regarding pre-certification, referrals, coinsurance and deductibles before receiving hospital services.
St. Francis Medical Center accepts most major health insurances carriers, however, you are financially responsibile for your bill for services rendered.
A 100 percent discount for medically necessary services is available to patients who earn 200 percent or less of the Federal Poverty Level guidelines and have assets no greater than $7,500 (individual) and $15,000 (family). Elective services such as cosmetic surgery are not included in our charity program. Individuals who earn more than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level guidelines are eligible for a partial discount.
Patient copays and deductibles may be eligible for discounted rates if a patient qualifies for financial assistance and earns less than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines.
Discounts are also available for those patients who are facing catastrophic costs associated with their medical care. Catastrophic costs occur when a patient’s medical expenses for an episode of care exceed 20 percent of their annual income. In these cases, patient copays and deductibles may also be included in the discount.
Charity care discounts may be denied if patients are eligible for other funding sources such as a Health Insurance Exchange plan or Medicaid eligibility and refuse or are unwilling to apply for these sources.
If you have questions about your bill at any point before, during or after your appointment or stay, do not hesitate to contact us. St. Francis Financial Counselors are here to help you. We know that a hospital stay can be a stressful time without worrying about financial issues, so let us know if you have concerns. We will make every effort to assist you in arranging for payment of your obligation through third-party insurance coverage, public and private assistance programs like NJ Family Care, the Health Insurance Marketplace and charity care funds. For persons who are not eligible for any of these programs, St. Francis has partnered with HealthFirst, a company that offers long-term payment solutions to patients who need a simple, convenient way to pay their medical expenses.
