Financial Assistance

  • Insurance

    A patient's potential to benefit from rehabilitation services is the primary criteria used when determining admission to Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital. Services are covered by most insurance carriers including Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross and many others. We will verify insurance benefits and pre-certify admissions prior to actual admission.

    Financial Assistance

    Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital provides financial assistance for medically necessary care to patients who are unable to pay.  The following is a summary of financial assistance available at Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital.

    Financial Assistance Offered. If you do not have insurance, we provide financial assistance for medically necessary care.  Eligible care includes medically necessary services as defined by Medicare (services or items reasonable and necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of illness or injury).

    You will receive free care, or 100% write off of patient liability after insurance has paid, if your family income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.  Write off of 75% of eligible billed charges may also be available for uninsured and certain other patients with family income up to 400% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.  All applicants will be screened for Medicaid coverage and must cooperate with the Medicaid representatives to be considered for financial assistance.

    Additional ways to qualify. If you do not meet the income criteria above, regardless of your insurance status, you will be considered on a case-by-case basis for financial assistance.  Contact us to discuss exceptional personal or financial circumstances, or if there are special medical circumstances where treatment can only be provided by Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital medical staff. 

    What you will be charged. If you receive financial assistance under our Policy, you will not be charged more for medically necessary care than the amount we generally bill patients having Medicare coverage.
