Financial Assistance Letter

The William W. Backus Hospital provides financial assistance for certain qualified patients who are unable to pay all or part of their bill for inpatient, outpatient and emergency services rendered at the hospital.

If you are coping with a financial hardship and are facing debts owed to The William W. Backus Hospital, financial assistance such as free care or a sliding scale discount may be available to you.  The financial counseling process will indicate what options exist to assist you with your outstanding balance.

Financial assistance applies to Backus Hospital bills only. It does not apply to Radiologists, Pathologists, Anesthesiologists or other professional services involved in your care that are billed separately.
