Charity Care (Free and Discounted Care)
Swedish's mission is to improve the health and well-being of each person we serve. A crucial part of fulfilling this mission is Swedish's financial assistance charity care program. In 2016, Swedish provided more than $21.6 million in direct financial assistance charity care for our patients.
Swedish's financial assistance charity care program:
Offers free or discounted hospital stays and services for those in our community who cannot afford care, are unable to pay, or are underinsured or have no insurance at all
Provides financial assistance in cases where annual family income is between zero and 400 percent of the federal poverty level
- Offers a simple instruction and application process in multiple languages
Ensures that financial constraints are not a barrier to the provision of care
As a nonprofit organization, Swedish relies heavily on community partnerships and the support of those who believe in our nonprofit mission of providing the very best care to every person we serve — regardless of their ability to pay.
