Patient Discount information
Penobscot Valley Hospital is dedicated to making healthcare services accessible to our patients. We recognize the financial needs of patients and families who are not able to afford medical care, so we provide medically necessary services at no cost or at a discount to those who qualify.
Eligibility and Assistance Offered
To qualify for charity or discounted care, the patient or family must complete a short questionnaire. Additional information may be requested which ultimately may affect the Hospital’s decision. The decision to provide financial assistance will be based on a review of the household income. Financial assistance will not be denied because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or marital status.
The need for medical care will be based on the clinical judgment of the healthcare provider without regard to financial status. All patients will be treated for emergency medical conditions without discrimination and regardless of their eligibility for charity or discounted care.
