Community Hospital will provide, without discrimination, care for emergency medical conditions to individuals regardless of their eligibility for financial assistance or for government assistance. Consistent with our mission to improve the health and quality of life of the individuals we serve, Community Hospital also has two financial assistance programs available for non-emergent care, the Colorado Indigent Care Program and Community Hospital Sliding Scale Program.
We encourage patients to apply for financial assistance and patients with or without insurance are eligible. This assistance is only for use on balances after all other payors have been processed. To qualify, a hospital balance(s) must be $250.00 or greater, a balance at Grand Valley Oncology must be $100.00 or greater.
Completing the application is not a guarantee that you will be approved for financial assistance. We will review the details of your application, which include current income, assets and family size. Be sure to sign the application, provide copies
of required documentation and submit the application within 14 days. You will be notified in writing/phone to come in and sign the completed FA application. If you have a payment plan set up you need to continue paying on it.
Financial assistance is not insurance and is not accepted by other health care providers and may not be combined with cash discounts. The type of services you receive determines the financial assistance program you may qualify for. Services excluded from all financial assistance programs include but are not limited to: plastic surgery, dental services & bariatric services.
Community Hospital will accept proof of financial assistance from other facilities. In this instance, patients are required to provide their current financial assistance cards along with a current photo ID.
Financial assistance is not considered to be a substitute for personal responsibility. Patients are expected to cooperate with procedures for obtaining financial assistance, and to contribute to the cost of their care based on their individual ability to pay.Quick Links:Financial AssistanceFinancial Assistance in Plain LanguageFinancial Assistance PolicyIncome and Household Size GuidelinesFAP Covered Providers
