Banner Health offers Financial Assistance Programs to Uninsured, Underinsured and Medically Indigent patients. This policy only applies to Banner hospitals and not to other BH facilities such as ASCs, imaging or urgent care. An Uninsured Patient means a patient without benefit of health insurance or government programs that may be billed for Covered Services provided to them based on Federal Poverty Level (FPL) guidelines, not otherwise excluded from this policy. An Underinsured Patient means a patient with qualified insurance coverage with significant limitations or co-responsibility. A Medically Indigent Patient means a patient with family medical expenses for a given calendar year which exceeds 50% of the household’s total income.
Spanish and other translations of Banner's Financial Assistance documentation are available in the admitting area. They may also be requested by contacting the Banner Patient Financial Services staff at (480) 684-7409 or if outside Arizona (855) 244-7460.
Banner Health has partnered with a vendor, offering a revolving line of credit up to $10,000, which can be used at participating Banner Health locations. This is based on credit approval – visit Curae for more information.
Banner also offers no-interest payment arrangements and discounts for self-pay patients. These discounts do not apply to services that offer packaged rates such as bariatric surgery or obstetrics. Any questions regarding the Banner financial assistance programs, or you need help establishing a payment arrangement please contact us at (888) 264-2127 Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. (all times are MST).
Banner Health partners with a nonprofit organization called Benefits CheckUp, which helps thousands of people find programs for those age 55 and older. These benefits may pay for some costs of prescription drug, health care, utilities, and other essential items or services. To check benefits available in your area, go to www.benefitscheckup.org.
