Financial Assistance Program

Financial Help for Hospital Bills

Carondelet Health Network works hard to help patients who need assistance paying for emergency or other medically necessary care at our hospitals.

If you’re unable to pay your hospital bill, we can help you to identify and apply for insurance coverage that may be available. If you still have a remaining balance after searching for all other coverage options, you may be eligible for our financial assistance program.

Financial Assistance Eligibility

Qualification for free or discounted emergency or medically necessary care at Carondelet is based on a family income less than 400 percent of the updated Federal Poverty Limit. You are usually eligible for financial assistance if:

  • You have no insurance and are not eligible for any other governmental assistance, and either of the following is true:
    • Your family income is at or below 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Limit
    • You believe that your assets, liquid assets or other available resources are otherwise insufficient to cover the cost of your care; your application may be reviewed for possible charity.

Application Paperwork

Along with an application for financial assistance, we’ll likely require evidence of income, assets and medical expenses to determine if you qualify. If you don’t qualify for financial assistance, you may still be eligible for self-pay or other discounts.

In addition to our financial assistance program, you can also find potential sources of assistance with applications for other coverage or financial assistance through the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) and the Pima Community Access Program.
