Financial Assistance Summary
Availability of Financial Assistance
Jupiter Medical Center (JMC) has established a Financial Assistance Policy
(FAP) to ensure a fair and equitable system for determining patient financial
need. This is a summary of the policy.
To determine financial assistance eligibility at JMC, a patient’s
total annual household income will be compared to the most current
Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). With certain restrictions, total annual household income less than
or equal to 200% of FPG will entitle the patient to a 100% discount. Total
annual household income over 200% but not greater than 400% of FPG will
entitle the patient to an 80% discount from gross charges. The patient’s
responsibility will not exceed 25% of his/her total annual household income.
Patients eligible for government funding programs generally will not qualify
for financial assistance under the policy. No person eligible for financial
assistance under the FAP will be charged more for emergency or other medically
necessary care than amounts generally billed to individuals who have insurance
covering such care. If an individual has sufficient insurance coverage
or assets available to pay for care, he/she may be deemed ineligible for
