Charity Discount Policy: Lake Butler Hospital’s Charity Discount Policy is for patients who require medical services but have no third-party insurance or other forms of liability coverage. Additionally, the patient must not meet the qualifications for other programs and have an income that is less than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Limits. A chart of the Federal Poverty Guidelines may be found here. The following patients may be eligible for a charity discount with our critical access hospital.
Third-party liability includes any type of insurance benefits that cover healthcare services (i.e., Group Health Insurance, Individual Health Insurance, Supplemental and Secondary Disability and Cancer policies, Workers Compensation Insurance, Automobile Insurance, Homeowners Insurance, etc.) or any type of legal action whereby medical expenditures are claimed as damages.
To qualify under this policy, you must complete a Financial Assistance Application.
