Financial Assistance

We Can Help You Pay for Your Care

At MultiCare, we will always provide medical care to you and your family regardless of your ability to pay. We're committed to serving all patients, including those who lack health insurance coverage, or who cannot pay for all or part of the essential care they receive.

We have several financial assistance programs available, including structured payment plans and income-based payment reductions. We use the Federal Poverty Guidelines to help determine what financial assistance level you may be eligible for:

  • Income up to 300 percent of Federal Poverty Guidelines
    If a patient's income level* is at or below 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, we will reduce the patient's bill by 100 percent.
  • Income 301-500 percent of Federal Poverty Guidelines
    If a patient's income level* is between 301 and 500 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, we will reduce the patient's bill. The exact reduction will depend on the patient's income and assets.

You can also download our Financial Assistance Eligibility Grid to review current poverty level income information and MultiCare's income-based discounts.

Don't neglect your health or the health of your family because you don't have insurance or are worried about the cost of care. Call us at 253-876-8550 to find out what financial options are available.

* Eligibility for financial assistance is based, among other factors, upon family income and number of family members in the household. To determine your eligibility, MultiCare must complete an official review. In order to receive financial assistance, you must provide all the information we need to verify your financial status.
