Adena’s Financial Assistance Program Updated to Help More Patients

To help patients who may have difficulty paying for medical care, Adena has updated its financial assistance program, making it more consistent, easier to understand and accessible to more patients. With the new plan, Adena’s Financial Assistance Program covers patients who fall within 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. These are the same guidelines used by the Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges, federally-subsidized programs such as Medicaid, and Ohio’s Hospital Care Assurance Program (HCAP).
