Charity Care Policy
Charity Care at Riverside Medical Center
Riverside Medical Center's mission is to provide a remarkable healthcare experience. We do this for each and every person, regardless of their personal or economic circumstance. Riverside is committed to provide charity care to persons who have healthcare needs and are uninsured, underinsured, ineligible for a government program, or otherwise unable to pay for medically necessary care based on their individual financial situation. The following guidelines are used when determining if financial assistance is appropriate or needed. These guidelines are intended for the use of the hospital and its collection agencies. The guidelines may be used by other entities of Riverside Healthcare; however each entity will determine their own specific policies related to charity care. Under no circumstances does this policy delay or prevent the treatment of emergency medical care. Riverside Medical Center provides care for emergency medical conditions to individuals regardless of their eligibility under the financial assistance policy.
