Community Care

Health Care Regardless of Ability to Pay

TMC HealthCare is committed to delivering caring, personalized, quality health care to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. As a nonprofit, community hospital, it’s our mission and our privilege to play this important role in our community. Within TMC HealthCare's Report to our Community, we celebrate the many ways we provide unique and definable benefits to the community.

Our Community Care Policy covers patients who lack the financial resources to pay for all or part of their bill and to process appropriate adjustments for hospital charges. Our financial representatives will consult with the patient and their family to identify state or federal resources available to cover the cost of care. This frequently involves obtaining health coverage through the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, or AHCCCS. This financial consultation can occur either after care is provided or in advance of a planned hospital stay.

If coverage is not available, the patient may request financial assistance. Requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis with eligibility determined based on the current year’s Federal poverty guidelines. The current year’s sliding scale, contains discounts applied up to 400 percent of the Federal poverty level.

The following is the TMC Patient Financial Service Sliding Fee Scale for Self Pay After Insurance coverage has been applied.

To view discount pricing, visit Community Care Pricing page, which shows prices of the most common inpatient and outpatient procedures for patients who do not have health insurance coverage but our financial representatives deem they are able to pay, and/or for patients who choose to pay out of pocket for inpatient and outpatient procedures.
