Patients without Insurance
At St. Luke's Hospital, financial assistance is provided to all patients with an identified need. It is important that patients inform us of their inability to pay. To meet federal regulations, hospitals are required to consistently bill all patients for amounts owed. St. Luke's Hospital reaches out to self-pay and underinsured patients in a number of ways, including raising patient awareness of Medicaid health insurance and the Hospital's Self-Pay Plan for patients. By assisting our patients with the Medicaid application process, St. Luke's helps patients obtain the benefits for which they qualify.
St. Luke's is committed to working with patients who do not have private insurance and who do not qualify for Medicaid, offering self-pay discounts in line with those that have been negotiated with private insurance companies. In addition, patients may be eligible for a "Prompt Pay" discount. To request an estimate of charges, please fill out a Request Estimate of Charges Form (PDF) and return to St. Luke's.
