Financial Assistance Application

Financial Policy Documents and Application in other languages are at the bottom of the page.

Financial assistance is available for emergency and other medically necessary care provided by GHS (and certain other providers) to both insured and uninsured patients who meet income and asset limit requirements. All patients who believe they may qualify for financial assistance are urged to fill out and submit a Financial Assistance Application.

In general, patients at or below 200% of applicable federal poverty guidelines and other limited resources may qualify for financial assistance. Patients between 200% and 400% of applicable federal poverty guidelines and other limited resources may qualify for a sliding scale adjustment, which will reduce the amount owed by the patient.

Patients who do not meet the criteria outlined above may qualify under the charity catastrophic clause. This clause refers to when the hospital bill or bills exceed two times the annual household income and the patient has other limited resources.

Once the application has been completed in its entirety, including signature, please submit it to:

Greenville Health System
255 Enterprise Boulevard, Ste. 250
Greenville, SC 29615

The completed application also may be returned to a GHS facility located near the patient. NOTE: The information provided on the charity application will be verified. If the information is determined at any time to be incorrect, charity care
