Financial Assistance

Alvarado Hospital Medical Center understands that paying for emergency or other medically necessary medical care can be difficult, particularly for patients who lack health insurance. As part of our commitment to our patients, we provide financial assistance to patients who are underinsured or uninsured and who satisfy certain requirements. Our Financial Counselors work hard to help patients address their financial responsibilities, and they will help you find financial solutions that can help cover your cost of care.

The Alvarado Hospital Medical Center Financial Assistance Program applies to uninsured or underinsured patients who come to our facilities for emergency or other medically necessary treatment. This program provides financial relief to patients who qualify based on a comparison of their financial resources and/or income to Federal Poverty Level guidelines. To qualify for assistance, patients will be asked to complete a Financial Assistance Application. If you have questions regarding our program or application, please call 619-229-3120.
