Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available to eligible patients who cannot afford to pay for their healthcare services. Eligibility is determined by family income, size and other factors. Patients whose gross family income is at or below 500% of the federal poverty guidelines for their family size will be eligible for financial assistance and will not be charged more than the current amounts generally billed. More information regarding this calculation is available in the full financial assistance policy below or you can call 337.494-3265, 337.480-8218 or email charityfinancialassistance@lcmh.com. Financial assistance is always considered secondary to all other sources of coverage.
