Account Payment Discounts
Patients who have no insurance coverage -- such as employer-based insurance, government-sponsored coverage or third-party liability coverage -- may be eligible for a 40% discount on charges for medically necessary services provided at one of our GMC hospital facilities. This discount is available to patients who pay their bill in full within thirty business days from the statement date.
Moreover, 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.
The Illinois Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount Act became effective 4/1/2009. Genesis Health System-Illini Campus offers uninsured Illinois residents additional financial discounts. Please contact a customer service representative for more information about uninsured Illinois resident discounts.
