Oswego Hospital's Financial Assistance Policy CLICK HERE
At Oswego Hospital, we constantly strive to keep costs at a reasonable level and consistent with the high quality of care that you expect.
The costs associated with being a patient result from the services associated with your care, including nursing, meals, housekeeping, maintenance and other routine things. In addition, the cost of special services are taken into consideration, and may include operating and recovery room costs, laboratory tests and x-rays, medications, and other treatments and procedures.
In addition to your hospital bill you may also receive a bill from your physician, radiologist or pathologist.
Oswego Hospital is a private, not-for-profit organization. It depends on you (and your insurance providers) for virtually all funds to maintain its operation. Most patients have some form of health insurance, either private or government.
Oswego Hospital provides billing services to most third-party payers. Costs not covered by your insurance program will be billed to you. It is important for you to know that regardless of the type of coverage you have for hospital costs, or who pays for your care, or the system they use, we at Oswego Hospital are committed to providing you with the best possible care.
The hospital can assist patients with obtaining medical coverage and with facilitated enrollment in various programs. Oswego Hospital also provides financial assistance.
Financial Assistance is available to all those who cannot afford to pay their hospital bills. All hospital medical services are covered by this policy. Oswego Hospital offers financial assistance to patients with income levels up to 300% of the Federal Poverty Level. The financial assistance offered by Oswego Hospital ranges from free care to a discounted hospital bill. For more information on these programs, or if you have questions about your hospital bill, call 349-5536.
Oswego Hospital is subject to New York State and Federal regulations with regard to fees and billing. Additionally, Oswego Hospital accepts all patients for service without regard to race, color, creed, or the ability to pay.
