CRHS Financial Assistance
At Columbus Regional Healthcare System, we are committed to providing quality health care to all who seek our services. We realize that health care is costly and may be a financial hardship to patients and their families.
Eligibility for Medicaid or other Government Assistance
Columbus Regional Healthcare System provides counselors who can assist you with determining Medicaid eligibility and applying for other government-assisted programs. Our counselors are available upon request throughout or following the time you receive care.
Eligibility for Charity Care
Columbus Regional Healthcare System offers charity care to our patients who are unable to pay due to financial hardships. We may require supporting documents including tax returns, pay stubs, Social Security award letter and other financial information. Patients will qualify for 100% assistance based on the following key criteria:
- Income up to 200% of the federal poverty guidelines based on family size
- The services received are not cosmetic or other elective procedures
Patients who do not qualify for Charity Care and have incurred catastrophic medical care bills with qualified balances and income over 200% of the federal poverty guideline are eligible for a catastrophic discount.
