How to Request Payment Assistance

How do I request payment assistance for my hospital services?

As a part of its mission, Methodist Health System provides financial assistance to patients who lack the ability to pay for hospital services. This financial assistance is in addition to other discounts provided in your estimate of out of pocket cost.

The determination of the ability to pay may take into account a number of financial variables, including but not limited to:

  • The earning status and potential of the patient and family,
  • Other sources of income and assets,
  • The level and type of liabilities,
  • The ability to obtain additional credit,
  • The amount and frequency of hospital/medical bills, and
  • The family size.

All or a part of the hospital bill may be considered for financial assistance.

As part of our mission and stewardship to the communities we serve, the Methodist Health System Financial Assistance Program will only cover hospital services rendered at any of our institutions that cannot be covered by any other payer including but not limited to third-party payers, third-party liability claims, and any federal or state health care program including the Medicaid program.
