To determine eligibility for financial assistance through Community Care, we consider:

1)     Medical Necessity

Medically necessary services are clinical and rehabilitative physical, mental or behavioral health services that:

  • are essential to prevent, diagnose or treat medical conditions (e.g., illnesses, injuries, physical, mental and behavioral disorders, impairments or disabilities) and enable the enrollee to attain, maintain or regain functional capacity; and
  • are delivered in the amount, duration, scope and setting that is appropriate to the specific physical, mental and behavioral health care needs of the individual; and
  • are required to meet the physical, mental and/or behavioral health needs of the individual and are not primarily for the convenience of the individual, the provider or the payer. 

2)   Ability to Pay

We look at income, family size, available resources and expected future income in determining your ability to pay.

  • Community Care – 100% free medical care for services provided by JRMC. Patients who are uninsured for the relevant , medically necessary service, who are ineligible for governmental or other insurance coverage, and who have family incomes not in excess of 100% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines will be able to receive Community Care.
  • Partial Community Care – care at a discounted rate for services provided by JRMC. Patients who are uninsured or under-insured for the relevant medically necessary service, who are ineligible for governmental or other insurance coverage, and who has family income in excess of 100% but not exceeding 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, will be eligible to receive Partial Community Care in the form of a discount off inpatient and/or outpatient charges.
