Financial Assistance

If you’re uninsured or have trouble paying for healthcare, Ascension may be able to help through our financial partnerships and resources.

Summary of Financial Assistance Policy

Saint Agnes Hospital has a commitment to and respect for each person’s dignity with a special concern for those who struggle with barriers to access healthcare services.  Saint Agnes Hospital has an equal commitment to manage its healthcare resources as a service to the entire community.  In furtherance of these principles, Saint Agnes Hospital provides financial assistance for certain individuals who receive emergency or other medically necessary care from Saint Agnes Hospital.  This summary provides a brief overview of Saint Agnes Hospital’s Financial Assistance Policy.

We offer a number of financial assistance programs to help qualified patients honor the uninsured portion of your bill.

Who Is Eligible?

You may be able to get financial assistance.  Financial assistance is generally determined by your total household income as compared to the Federal Poverty Level.  If your income is less than or equal to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level, you will receive a 100% charity care write-off on the portion of the charges for which you are responsible.  If your income is above 250% of the Federal Poverty Level but does not exceed 400% of the Federal Poverty Level, you may receive discounted rates on a sliding scale.  If your income is between 400% and 500% of the Federal Poverty Level and you request assistance, a payment plan will be made available to you. Patients who are eligible for financial assistance will not be charged more for eligible care than the lesser of (1) amounts generally billed to patients with insurance coverage, or (2) charges minus the hospital’s mark-up.

Please call 1-667-234-2140 for more information.

You may be eligible for Maryland Medical Assistance.  Medical Assistance is a program that will pay for your health coverage.  If you wish to apply with the State please call 1-855-642-8572 or apply online at or you can call 1-667-234-3314 or 1-667-234-2188 and we can assist.
