Baptist is committed to treating all patients equally, with dignity, respect and compassion. We provide medical services in anticipation of payments by patients and/or those financially responsible for patients in exchange for medical treatments rendered. As a service to our patients, we work with them to determine if they qualify for federal, state and local programs with healthcare coverage.
Baptist is dedicated to providing compassionate, high-quality care for patients while keeping with the three-fold ministry of Christ - healing, preaching and teaching. In accordance with our mission, Baptist established a Financial Assistance Policy (Política de asistencia financiera) to help patients with an established need for assistance in paying for emergency and medically necessary care. We work with our patients to help determine if they are eligible for financial assistance under the Baptist Financial Assistance Policy. In order to consistently apply assistance to all of the communities we serve, patients must fully comply with the application process. To determine your eligibility please complete a Financial Assistance Application (Solicitud financiera financial application) and provide all of the required personal and financial information. Return the form and supporting documentation to the facility where you received or are receiving care.
