Financial Assistance for Medical Care Ministry Health Care's Community Care financial assistance program works in collaboration with other financial (both public and private) assistance programs to ensure the holistic wellness of patients by facilitating knowledge of available services and programs for health, while practicing good stewardship of funds. Key criteria utilized to determine eligibility for Community Care financial assistance includes family size, federal poverty income guidelines, and available assets.
In accordance with Ministry Health Care's values, staff will treat patients and family members with compassion, dignity and respect at all times during the Community Care process. All patient and proprietary information is considered confidential and protected by law. Ministry Health Care will safeguard the privacy and security of patient protected health information. Access to patient and / or proprietary information is kept to a minimum and is determined by a "need-to-know" information which is necessary to carry out duties or assignments. Ministry Health Care assures that services and programs are equally available to everyone; immigration status will not be reported to federal agencies.
Community Care patients must complete an application form and supply all necessary information required to make a determination for financial assistance eligibility. The same application form will be utilized by all applicable Ministry Health Care organizations. The application form will be subject to periodic verification of the individual or family's current financial status. If a patient believes a denial for Community Care was made in error, the patient may appeal the decision in writing.
