Financial InformationEmbrace Health
Thank you for choosing Santiam Hospital for your health care needs. In keeping with our mission to embrace health, Santiam Hospital is committed to providing health care for people regardless of their ability to pay.
Financial Assistance Program
It is the policy of Santiam Hospital that those without the ability to pay will be fairly, consistently, and objectively evaluated as to their eligibility for charity under stated guidelines.
- Charity care is generally secondary to all other financial resources available to the patient, including insurance, government programs, third party liability, and liquid assets.
- In all cases, the responsible party is required to show proof of attempting to obtain coverage through the Exchange or through Oregon Health Plan.
- The responsible party must return a completed application with the specified time. It will be made in writing and accompanied by sufficient documentation to verify income amounts indicated on the application form for the 12 months prior to the date of request.
