Many hospitals today make it difficult for uninsured and under-insured patients to apply for charity care. The study highlighted in the article linked below shows a growing problem and the need for patients to have better information and access to the application process.
Most hospitals in Ohio participate in the Health Care Assurance Program (HCAP), which provides them with state and federal funds to cover costs of treating uninsured and under-insured patients. You can request and complete an HCAP Application and submit it to any of these participating hospitals. Contact NOBCCF if you have questions or need assistance at 440-717-9912.
