Resumen en lenguaje sencillo

How do I know if I qualify to receive assistance?

To see if you are eligible for financial assistance you must first complete the Self Pay Financial Assistance Affidavit* or fill out the Charity Care Application. The amount of financial assistance you receive will depend upon your total household income based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Federal Poverty Guidelines. If your family income is below 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may be eligible for one of the low income assistance programs (e.g., Medicaid or Charity Care). If your income is 300% or above, and you have no insurance, you will be eligible for a hospital discounted fee  equal to the “amount generally billed” for emergency or other medically necessary services.

Services provided by Radiology, Pathology and doctors not employed by the hospital are not included in this policy.

Pay Your Bill

Please keep in mind that you will receive separate statements for each hospital, employed physician and contracted providers. For instance, you will also receive separate bills for use of the hospital facilities in addition to the professional service fee of the physician. Other tests that may be billed separately include x-rays, laboratory, cardiology and consulting physicians; such services are provided by independent physicians who are not employees of the hospital.

You have the right to receive all the hospital care that is necessary for the proper diagnosis and treatment of your illness or injury. According to federal law, your discharge date must be determined solely by your medical needs - not by DRG’s or Medicare payments.

Because we understand that hospital bills can be confusing, we assign a Patient Financial Representative to answer your questions, and iron out any difficulties. The representative who will handle your account will meet with you during the Pre-Admission Testing process, or shortly after you are admitted. He or she will discuss arrangements for paying your bill and will be glad to answer any questions you may have about charges, your insurance coverage, or payment.

It is within the St. Joseph’s Health’s mission to render quality healthcare in northern New Jersey with a special concern for the poor and underserved.

Patients and families can now pay their bill online. Click below to access our safe and secure online billing payment system.
