The mission of South Peninsula Hospital is to provide you with quality medical care regardless of your ability to pay. We can appreciate the dramatic impact unexpected medical bills can have when insurance coverage is not available or is insufficient. We have several ways to help you in this time of need:

 

Self-Pay Discount
Patients who do not have insurance, or who choose not to utilize insurance benefits, will automatically receive a Self-Pay Discount equal to 25% of the total charges. Applies to hospital services, clinic, outpatient surgery and professional charges.   Income qualifications are not required.

Prompt Pay Discount
South Peninsula Hospital offers a 10% discount to self-pay patients who pay their balance within 30-days front the date of the first cycle statement.  Income qualifications are not required.

Medicaid—Expedited Enrollment
South Peninsula Hospital is qualified to make preliminary Medicaid eligibility determinations for qualified applicants.  Presumptive Eligibility is an expedited process of enrolling eligible applicants for short term coverage in the Medicaid program.  It provides eligible individuals with immediate coverage while their application is processed for the full Medicaid program.

Pre-Paid Discount
A pre-paid discount is available to the residents in Long Term Care.  A sliding discount is available based on pre-payments of 60 days, 90 days and greater than 90 days.

Other Insurance Enrollment Assistance
Assistance is available with enrolling in Medicare, Medicaid or the federally mandated insurance options in Alaska. Call 235-0235 to set up an appointment with a financial counselor, or inquire at your next visit.

Advanced Imaging Discount
