Financial Assistance

Insurance

Northshore Rehabilitation Hospital accepts most commercial insurance plans, workers' compensation, managed care and Medicare plans. We recommend you contact your insurer or employer with any questions about your policy or coverage before admission. And please bring your insurance cards with you when you arrive to ensure accurate claims submissions.

Financial Assistance

Northshore Rehabilitation Hospital provides financial assistance for medically necessary care to patients who are residents of Louisiana and Mississippi and who are unable to pay. The following is a summary of financial assistance available at Northshore Rehabilitation Hospital.

Financial Assistance Offered. If you do not have insurance, we provide financial assistance for medically necessary care. You will receive free care if your family income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines and you are a resident of Louisiana or Mississippi. All applicants will be screened for Medicaid coverage and must cooperate with the Medicaid representatives to be considered for financial assistance.

Additional ways to qualify. If you do not meet the income criteria above, regardless of your insurance status or state of residence, you will be considered on a case-by-case basis for financial assistance if you contact us to discuss exceptional personal or financial circumstances; or, if there are special medical circumstances where treatment can only be provided by Northshore Rehabilitation Hospital medical staff.

What you will be charged. Charges will not exceed amounts generally billed. If you receive financial assistance under our Policy, you will not be charged more for medically necessary care than the amount we generally bill patients having Medicare coverage.
