The Franciscan Alliance recognizes that patients and their families may need
assistance paying for services received here because of insufficient insurance
coverage or no insurance is available.
Any patient with a balance related to services, or a person responsible for
paying a patient bill (guarantor) for services received at any Sisters of St.
Francis Health Services facility may apply for financial assistance to cover all
or part of the patient balance(s) based on a verified financial need.
