Community Medical Centers has a long history of giving back to our community. That's reflected in our generous financial assistance policies which help low-income patients who seek care at our hospitals. We're committed to providing compassionate, high-quality care to the community we serve.
If you don't have health insurance, our staff can help you locate government or private programs that may provide financial assistance. The first step is eligibility for a government-sponsored health program like Medi-Cal or Medicare. If you qualify, these programs can provide health care access and other social services for you and your family. For assistance, please call Patient Financial Services at (559) 459-3939 or (800) 773-2223.
If you're not eligible for the above, or are insured with high medical costs, you may qualify for Community Medical Centers' Financial Assistance program.
