BGH Cares Program

Purpose
The mission of Bonner General Health is to provide healthcare services to all persons in need of medically necessary services regardless of ability to pay. BGH Cares is established to provide financial assistance regardless of race, color, sex, religion, age or national origin to those patients who are medically indigent or with limited or no financial resources to pay for medical care.

Policy
Bonner General Health offers financial assistance for medically necessary services to all patients who meet the guidelines set forth in the BGH Cares Policy. Assistance, in most cases, is the last resource to all other financial resources and/ or assistance programs available to the patient. All possible forms of third-party payment will be pursued prior to BGH Cares assistance. Patients/ Guarantors are expected to assist with any efforts to obtain third-party payment.
