John Muir Health funds a patient assistance program that may cover all or part of your hospital bills. Your eligibility is based partly on your household income and your assets. To qualify, you must meet one of the following sets of criteria:
A. You must have no insurance or other third party that will pay all or part of your hospital bill. You also must have a family income of no more than 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
B. You have some form of third-party insurance coverage, but you do not receive a discounted rate from John Muir Health because of that coverage. Also, your annual out-of-pocket costs for medical expenses must exceed 10% of the lesser of the annualized value of the patient’s current family income or the family’s actual income over the prior 12 months and you must have a family income of no more than 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
