Financial Assistance Program

Mercy Financial Assistance Policy
Mercy Health's mission is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus by improving the health of our communities with an emphasis on people who are poor and underserved.

We care for everyone who comes to us in need regardless of his or her ability to pay. Meeting the needs of people with limited resources has been at the heart of our mission for 150 years.

Mercy Health recognizes the difficulty unexpected medical problems can cause to your finances. We are here to help so that patients can obtain medical benefits from federal, state and hospital programs. We want to assist you in finding resources that may help pay your hospital bill. In fact, every patient who does not have insurance is eligible for discounts. Please read more about our financial programs.
