A number of public and private programs are available to help patients who are unable to pay for medical treatment.
State Medicaid Programs
These state administered health insurance programs make state and federal funds available to qualifying patients to pay for medical care. Funds are available for patients with low incomes or with certain disabilities. The following programs are in or near Intermountain Healthcare's service area:
This federal health insurance program addresses the needs of senior citizens and those with certain disabilities.
- Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
Utah children may be eligible for health benefits under this state program.
- Utah's Primary Care Network (PCN)
The Utah Primary Care Network provides primary and preventative health coverage for low-income adults. Applications are only accepted during enrollment sessions, which are held when resources are available to cover more people.
- Crime Victims Reparations
If you are the victim of a crime, you may be eligible for funds to help pay for medical costs
Many Utah clinics provide primary health care services to qualifying patients on a sliding-fee or charitable basis. These clinics are the most appropriate resource for non-emergency medical treatment.
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) benefits
If you are uninsured but have had health insurance coverage from a previous employer, you may still be able to obtain coverage for yourself and your family for a limited period of time. Contact your current or former employer for information. For details about COBRA, please contact the billing office of the facility where you received care.
