Financial Counseling

If you don’t have health insurance, or if your health insurance does not cover all the costs, there may be federal and state resources that can help. Roper St. Francis Healthcare offers a Financial Counseling service to help patients identify possible options for financial assistance. Eligibility requirements and the application process may be different depending upon the program.

It’s very important that you meet with a financial counselor as soon as possible to learn about what may be available to you.  For more information on federal and state resources, to schedule an appointment or questions on how you may apply email fcp@rsfh.com or contact our financial counseling department.

Cost Estimates

How much will my medical procedure cost?
We can help you calculate your covered and non-covered expense. Roper St. Francis Healthcare offers the services of a financial counselor to patients who need help estimating their insurance covered and out-of-pocket expenses for a wide range of medical and surgical procedures prior to receiving treatment at one of our facilities.

What is the Transparency of Hospital Charges Rule and what does it mean to me as a patient?
Hospitals are now required by Medicare to post their charge master under the Requirement for Transparency of Hospital Charges Rule and the standard charges for each diagnosis-related group (DRG) as established under section 1886(d)(4) of the Social Security Act. The intention of the rule is to help patients understand their potential cost estimate and comparisons across facilities.
