Financial Assistance Policy/Charity Care

Financial Assistance Program/Charity Care

We have established a financial assistance program to provide a full or partial discount of medical services to patients who meet eligibility standards and are unable to pay. The financial assistance program covers all services provided and billed by Northfield Hospital + Clinics.

How do I qualify for this program?
We determine eligibility by comparing family income and assets to Federal Poverty Guidelines and the guidelines established by Northfield Hospital + Clinics.

If your total family income (before taxes) is less than 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may qualify for a full discount.

If your total family income (before taxes) is between 200%-300% of Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may qualify for a partial discount.
