What is Charity Care?

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Description

For adults.

Presented by the Office of the Attorney General.

Federal and state laws require hospitals to provide Washingtonians certain types of medical care for free or at a lower cost, depending on income and family size. Charity care must be offered to people who cannot afford to pay for medical treatment. State law defines charity care as “medically necessary” treatment. This includes inpatient hospital stays and emergency room visits. 

This presentation will help you navigate the sometimes-costly medical services you or your loved ones could face in a medical emergency. Get tips, resources and your questions answered by a consumer protection representative.
