Charity Care Program-Financial Assistance
Our patient financial assistance program may cover all or part of your hospital bills. Your eligibility is based partly on your household income. To qualify, you must meet one of the following sets of criteria:

a.    You must have no insurance or other third party that will pay all or part of your hospital bill. You also must have a family income of no more than 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Or

b.    You have some form of third-party insurance coverage, but you do not receive a discounted rate from San Ramon Regional Medical Center because of that coverage. Also, your annual out-of-pocket costs for medical expenses must exceed 10% of your family income in the past 12 months. Documentation will be requested to verify your circumstances in order to determine eligibility. Please contact the Financial Assistance Center at (888)233-7868, Monday thru Friday, 6am to 6pm (PST) for additional information.
