About OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital
Sliding Scale

Riverside Methodist Patient Financial Services: (614) 566.5059

Resources to Help Pay Your Healthcare Costs

Charity care and medical financial assistance is offered to patients with limited or no resources and inadequate medical insurance coverage. Eligibility is determined by family income. Patients are encouraged to apply for other financial assistance available to pay hospital charges (Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance) before being discharged. Our not-for-profit hospitals provide high quality care to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.

OhioHealth's Charity Care Policy

OhioHealth’s charity care policy includes:


Substantial charity care guidelines that provide free care for individuals and families who earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level

Sliding scale fees to provide substantially discounted care for individuals and families who are between 200 and 400 percent of the federal poverty level

Hardship policy for those patients who would not otherwise qualify for charity care but have unique circumstances

In many cases, OhioHealth offers interest-free loans for up to one year to assist patients. In addition. OhioHealth has an uninsured discount policy for individuals without insurance who do not qualify for charity care.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021
Persons In Family Household Poverty Guideline Salary per year
1 $12,760
2 $17,240
3 $21,720
4 $26,200
5 $30,680
6 $35,160
7 $39,640
8 $44,120

For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.

These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
