  • Work with the hospital
  • Provide transportation as needed
  • Keep all information confidential

Barton Health Offers Financial Assistance

Barton Health provides financial assistance to patients in need who do not qualify for other programs.* The amount of discount you receive toward the balance of your medical bill will depend on your adjusted income as compared with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Poverty Guidelines (subject to approval by the Financial Assistance Committee). Upon qualifying for discounted medical services, we will work out a payment plan based on your ability to pay - we simply ask that you honor our payment
plan agreement.

*All financial assistance is based on funds budgeted yearly by the hospital. There may be times during the year when funds will not be available which will limit the ability to approve applications.
