Hill-Burton Act: Free or Low Cost Care

What Are Some Reasons I Could Be Denied Hill-Burton Assistance?

Next » « Previous


The facility may deny your request for Hill-Burton assistance if:

  • Your income is higher than the guidelines used by the facility. The facility, in its Allocation Plan,sets an income limit of either one, two, or sometimes three times the federal poverty level as the maximum income eligible for Hill-Burton financial assistance. The facility will inform you of its maximum income level at the time of application.
  • The facility has given out its required amount of free care for the year as specified in its Allocation Plan.
  • The services you requested or received are not covered in the facility's Allocation Plan.
  • The services you requested or received are to be paid by Medicare/Medicaid, insurance or other financial assistance program. The facility asks you to first apply for Medicaid/Medicare or a financial assistance program and you do not cooperate.

You do not give the facility requested proof of your income, such as a pay stub.
