Hospital & Charity

The Affordable Health Care Act aims to make health care affordable and accessible to all. However, there are still those who struggle to afford medical and hospital care without additional help. CSCGW assists these clients through what is known as Charity Care. Charity Care refers to free or low cost care provided by hospitals to uninsured or under-insured patients. Our staff help patients avoid hospital bills while a Charity Care application is in process or pending. Because each hospital’s Charity Care program is different, we encourage clients to contact our Center as soon as they enter a hospital. In doing so, our staff may effectively mediate for patients in both emergency and non-emergency cases. In addition to patient assistance with Charity Care, CSCGW is also an advocate for the continuation and lawful use of Charity Care resources by the hospitals themselves.
