Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital has a Patient Financial Assistance program to help families with the costs of their child’s medical care.
When you schedule care here for your child, our authorization or admissions staff will help determine how much of the cost is covered by insurance, and how much of the cost will be your responsibility. (We do this as a courtesy - it is each family’s responsibility to understand their own coverage and benefits.) It is your responsibility to provide us with correct and complete information about your health insurance. If your coverage changes, it is your responsibility to promptly provide us with the new information. Physician services are billed separately but are discussed as part of the total estimated cost.
Unless other arrangements are made in advance, we require that 1/2 of any estimated self-pay balance be paid on the first day of care, and that the rest be paid weekly over the course of treatment.
If you are concerned about paying the self-pay portion of your child’s care, you have the right to apply to Mt. Washington for patient financial assistance. We provide full assistance to families at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines; partial assistance to families with incomes up to 200% of the federal poverty guidelines; and assistance on a case-by-case basis to families with incomes above the 200% level.
You may be eligible for one or both of these programs:
