At Frisbie Memorial Hospital, we are committed to providing quality health care that is affordable and accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. It is important that patients continue to receive any medical services that may be needed. To ensure that cost will not be a barrier to our community, we offer financial assistance and help patients apply for other programs that they may be eligible for.

Frisbie Memorial Hospital offers an application process and will assess eligibility based on hospital guidelines. In addition to applying for financial assistance, our financial counselors will determine your eligibility for federal or state programs. If it is determined that you are eligible for one of these programs, we will assist you in the application process.
