La Paz Regional Hospital, a not for profit organization exempt from federal and state taxes and as the sole hospital in La Paz County, recognizes it is obligated to provide healthcare services to all individuals without regard to their ability to pay for those services. In addition, the hospital recognizes that there are individuals who have neither the income nor assets to obtain private health insurance coverage or to pay out-of-pocket for healthcare services. Therefore, it is the policy of this hospital to provide financial assistance or grant forgiveness related to portions of the debt incurred by patients who apply for financial assistance and who fall within the established financial criteria.
Eligible patients will be those described in the first paragraph whose annual household income does
not exceed 250 percent of the current year Poverty Income Guidelines published by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (attachment A). Any uninsured patient will be eligible for a 30% reduction in charges as a recognition of their need for financial assistance, with a potential for a greater consideration as follows. Patients whose household income falls at or below the poverty guidelines will be potentially eligible for a 50% reduction in charges. Patients whose household income is greater than 100 percent but less than 151 percent of the poverty level will be potentially eligible for a 45% reduction in charges. Patients whose household income is greater than 151 percent but less than 201 percent of the poverty level will be potentially eligible for a 40% reduction in charges. Patients whose household income is greater than 201 percent but less than 251 percent of the poverty level will be potentially eligible for a 35% reduction in charges.
Patients may apply for the financial assistance program at any time having been notified of their potential eligibility. The hospital shall require proof of income and reserves the right to adequately verify the information submitted by the individual requesting assistance.
Patients who have very high deductible health insurance coverage, who are responsible for the total bill as it falls under the deductible must; nevertheless, meet the guidelines of Section A below.
In recognition of the need for the hospital to generate net income sufficient to sustain operations, annual combined bad debt and financial assistance in excess of six (6) percent of hospital gross income will be cause for the financial assistance program to be reviewed, and possibly adjusted. The hospital's audited year end financial statements will report patient revenue net of financial assistance reductions as called for in the current hospital audit guide.
