We’re ready to help
Baptist Health Care is committed to providing quality health care that improves the health of those we serve and to provide excellent service. One of the ways, Baptist Health Care fulfills this mission is to provide financial assistance to those members of the community in need. Baptist Health Care Financial Assistance Program may be able to assist with expenses for your care.
How can I qualify?
To find out if you qualify for financial assistance, please contact Baptist’s Customer Service 850.469.2000. All inquiries are confidential.
After speaking with our Customer Service Representatives or one of our Financial Counselors, they will provide you with the Financial Assistance Application. You need to include documents that verify your income and assets for yourself and any household members (if applicable).
Examples of documentation used to verify eligibility include pay stubs, tax returns forms, bank statements, and medical bills owed. Additional forms of verification may be required.
Baptist Health Care will determine financial assistance eligibility based upon income and asset guidelines and the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. Approved applications apply to Baptist Health Care accounts only.
Notification of Eligibility
Applicants will be notified by letter regarding their Financial Assistance application status.
Please note that collections continue on your account until all required verification is received. If supporting documentation is not submitted with the financial statement and/or falsification of any portion of the application is identified, your application will be denied. PLEASE NOTE: The financial assistance offered under this program does not apply to physician or other professional fees billed separately from the hospital fees.
For questions or assistance with the financial assistance application, please call our office at 850.469.2000.
