Financial Assistance Summary - for Patients
USC Arcadia Hospital is dedicated to making healthcare services accessible to our patients and acknowledges the financial needs of our community who are unable to afford the charges associated with the cost of their medical care. The hospital offers a Financial Assistance Program for qualifying patients who receive emergency or medically necessary care. Patients must complete an application, submit certain verification documents and meet the eligibility requirements. This policy does not cover any other providers of service except USC Arcadia Hospital.

Financial Assistance for Uninsured Patients
USC Arcadia Hospital offers many forms of financial relief for patients without healthcare insurance (“uninsured”) who need emergency or non-elective services. We have financial counselors available to evaluate your eligibility for various local and state programs, including county assistance and Medicaid.
USC Arcadia Hospital has a financial assistance policy that provides free hospital care for patients who have received emergency treatment, do not meet the qualifications for Medicaid and whose income is less than 350 percent of the federal poverty level. To qualify for this free care, you must complete a financial assistance application and provide documents to support your income.
For patients who do not meet the financial assistance policy criteria and will be expected to pay for services out of pocket, USC Arcadia Hospital offers a discount similar to that received by managed-care health plans. All uninsured patients (except those receiving cosmetic procedures and certain “package” procedures) will be given a discount. All pricing estimates posted under the “Uninsured” insurance type already reflect the hospital’s uninsured discount.
