SBL Fayette County Hospital

Financial Assistance

To continue providing the residents of Fayette county and its surrounding communities with high-quality healthcare, we ask that all patients pay their bill within 30 days of the statement date. Remember, you will not receive a bill from the hospital until after the necessary claims have been submitted to your insurance company.

For your convenience , Fayette County Hospital accepts a variety of payment options including Mastercard® and Visa®. We also offer a number of payment programs to reward those who pay on time and to help those who may be unable to pay their bill within the specified time period. This includes:

Prompt Payment Discount

A 10% prompt payment discount will be applied to accounts paid in full within 30 days of the statement date.

Uninsured Discount

Additional discounts may be available depending on family income and size. Please contact the Fayette County Financial Counselor for more information.

Monthly Payment Program

Patients who are unable to pay their bills in full may participate in a monthly payment program. Please contact the Fayette County Financial Counselor for more information.

Financial Assistance Program

Our Financial Assistance Program allows us to continue providing care for the sick and injured, regardless of their ability to pay. To qualify for assistance, applicants must complete an application, as well as provide documentation of current family income, a statement of assets, and evidence of investigation of all other means of assistance (including Public Aid). Financial assistance is determined by comparing the applicant’s gross family income to the most recent Federal Poverty Guidelines. If approved, the applicant will receive a notice indicating the amount being waived through the program. If denied or an outstanding balance remains on the patient’s bill, a monthly payment program will be set up. Please contact the Fayette County Financial Counselor for more information or click here to download the Financial Assistance Application.

The Fayette County Financial Counselor is available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm and can be reached at (618) 283-5140.
