Financial Assistance Program
The St. Joseph Health (SJH) Financial Assistance Program helps to make
our health care services available to everyone in our community needing
emergent or medically necessary care. This includes people who do not
have health insurance and are unable to pay their hospital bill, as well
as patients who do have insurance but are unable to pay the portion of
their bill that insurance does not cover. In some cases, eligible patients
will not be required to pay for services; in others, they may be asked
to make partial payment.
At St. Joseph Hospital, Eureka and Redwood Memorial Hospital, part of our
mission is to provide quality care to all our patients, regardless of
their ability to pay. We believe that no one should delay seeking needed
medical care because they lack health insurance or are worried about their
ability to pay for their care. This is why we have a Financial Assistance
Program for eligible patients.
