Today's health care can be expensive. New technologies, medicines and procedures provide life-changing results, but often at a cost that can seem quite overwhelming.
In response, Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital offers multiple options for payment, as well as trained social work staff, grant and government program integration and excellent financial counselors.
It is very important to work with us as soon as you are aware you may have difficulty paying your bill. If you have not responded to us, or have allowed your bill to default to a collections status, there will be limited options in how we can help.
The first step is to call our financial counselors. You may also wish to download and print our financial assistance application to begin preparation.
PRIMARY HEALTH CARE ASSISTANCE
If you find yourself in need of primary health care, or pregnancy care, and do not have insurance or qualify for Medicaid and Medicare and live in Monroe or Owen county, the Volunteers In Medicine clinic may be able to provide you complete health care at no cost.
ASSISTANCE FOR THOSE WITH HIV/AIDS
If you are experiencing HIV or AIDS, Positive Link can help.
ASSISTANCE FOR THOSE WITH CANCER
IU Health Bloomington Hospital Cancer Services understands that cancer is a life-changing event. One-on-one counseling is available through our Olcott Center for Cancer Education to help you navigate through your health care. The GIRL Friend Fund is an ongoing fund provided through Scramble for A Cure, and other donations, to assist cancer patients with specific needs. In the past, funds have been used to buy wigs, gas cards, and more. The fund is not available to pay for medical treatment or outstanding household bills. Please call 812.353.5669 to learn more.
You may also wish to participate in the free massages offered through the Bloomington Hospital Foundation for all cancer patients. Massage takes place at the Olcott Center for Cancer Education. Call 812.353.9484 to learn more.
The WISE program, offered through the local YMCA, provides scheduled, private time for cancer patients and survivors to meet as a group with exercise professionals and utilize YMCA equipment. The hospital partners with the YMCA for the unique offering, and the GIRL Friend Fund will cover a one-year membership for cancer patients. Call 332.5555, extension 221, to learn more.
