financial assistance & charity care
helping those who need it
We realize that hospital care can be expensive. To help meet the needs of low-income, uninsured and underinsured patients, Oak Valley Hospital District has a financial assistance program for full charity or partial charity care to assist with payments.
Eligibility for financial assistance is based on an evaluation of income and expense information. Monetary assets may be considered as well. Patients must meet eligibility requirements and complete an application to qualify. Eligible patients cannot be charged more than the amounts generally billed for emergency or other medically necessary care.
income qualification levels
For patients whose family income is at or below (200%) of the Federal Poverty Level, their entire bill will be written off.
For patients whose family income is less than or equal to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level, the patient liability will be no more than what Medicare would typically pay.
