Financial Assistance

Ask an OakAssist Financial Advisor
We understand that when you need hospital care, worrying about the financial responsibility can add additional stress. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not cover all of the costs, there may be other options to assist you.

You can call and speak with an advisor to discuss the options that better fit your needs. Our staff of Financial Advisor are here to help you every step of the way. 313.593.7136

Charity Care
Charity Care is provided to patients who are in need of health care services but cannot afford to pay for that care and may have a significant financial burden as a result of the amount they are expected to pay.

Partial and/or full charity care is based on the individual’s ability to pay and upon meeting certain income eligibility criteria as established by the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines where no significant assets exist and the patient is not eligible for coverage from a third party.

Medicaid Eligibility
Our financial advisors at OakAssist are here to help determine if a patient is eligible for Medicaid and provide assistance with the application process. If you believe you may be eligible, the “Medicaid Eligibility At a Glance” document may help you determine if this is an option for you.
