Financial Assistance

Episcopal Health Services (EHS) operates a not-for-profit hospital and is an organization whose mission is to provide treatment to persons in need regardless of their ability to pay or their source of payment for services. We have a policy for our billing office to follow that sets guidelines for levels of assistance dependent upon the financial situation (income and family size), and no one will be denied services based on inability to pay.

If your health coverage does not cover your medical expenses, we can work with you on arranging payment. A representative is available to review your individual financial situation to determine if you qualify for financial assistance, either in the form of government assistance, an individual payment plan or EHS Charity Care.

If you qualify for EHS Charity Care, your facility charges may apply a “flat-fee” or a percentage of the facility’s applicable Medicaid Rate for Inpatient and/or Outpatient service types, or to a percentage of charges. The final discounted amount will depend on the type of service rendered (see 'Financial Assistance Addendum A – Charity Care Grid' for specific amounts by service types below). Professional bills from our St. John’s Medical Services, P.C. may apply a “flat-fee” and/or percentage of charges according to the applicable charity group level. All other professional services are excluded and financial hardship should be addressed directly with the billing entity.

It is important to let us know as soon as possible that you may have trouble paying your

bill. For Inpatient or Outpatient assistance please call 718-869-7077 or stop by the Finance Department located in Room CP156, first floor of the hospital, during the hours of 9:00am to 3:00pm. You may also speak about financial assistance with the staff where you are seeking treatment.
