Genesis provides a Financial Assistance program to all of those in need in a fair non-discriminatory manner. Genesis offers a Financial Assistance Program that may provide a sliding fee schedule for patients whose annual household income is within 200% of the federal poverty guideline and owe a balance after insurance pays. For example, a family of four with an annual household income of $63,600 or less may be eligible for a 50% discount on the account balance after insurance payments have been applied.
