Financial Assistance - NEW

SCL Health System operates hospitals and clinics in Colorado, Kansas and

    income.
  • Available to individuals and families whose income falls
    within 400% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines
    (updated annually) and for medical hardship.

    (for example, cosmetic and/or services not medically
    necessary).

• You will be notifi ed after a review of your application
is completed.
• You will receive a phone call and letter with
our decision.

other public assistance or for insurance through
your state’s health insurance exchange, we will help

What you need to know if you qualify

application and complete another fi nancial screening.
Charges for services
As part of our Financial Assistance Policy, SCL Health
System is committed to making patients aware of
estimated charges for the medical services they will
receive at our hospitals. Sometimes specifi c charges
that will appear on your bill after those medical
services are provided will depend on services your
physicians order and provide. Although we attempt
to make patients aware of the estimated charges, it
is diffi cult to know ahead of time exactly what those
charges will be.
