Help Paying Your Bill

As part of our mission and commitment to the community, La Palma Intercommunity Hospital is committed to providing quality healthcare that is affordable for our community. If you don’t have health insurance, you may be eligible for a government-sponsored health program, such as Medicare, Medi-Cal, or other state or county-funded healthcare coverage.

If you are not eligible for a government program and meet certain low- and moderate- income requirements, you may qualify for our Financial Assistance Program.  Our Financial Assistance Program provides financial assistance to help qualified patients pay for healthcare based on their financial need. This includes emergency, urgent, or medically necessary care. Patients who qualify get some or all of their costs covered regardless of whether they have healthcare coverage, or are uninsured, or are underinsured.
