We understand that not all patients have insurance or the same financial circumstances. We have a variety of discount programs and payment options, and specialists who can work with you one-on-one to understand your bill, your insurance coverage and assistance for which you may qualify. These policies are utilized and applicable to the following at Gibson Area Hospital and our CLINICS:

What If Charges Are More Than The Assistance Provided?
In cases where an eligible patient receives financial help of less than 100% of gross charges, the patient will not owe more than the amount generally billed (AGB) to individuals who have insurance. Visit the patient billing page to learn more about calculating the AGB.

Has Your Insurance Coverage Recently Ended?
COBRA allows you to temporarily keep the health insurance offered by your employer if you lose or quit your job, or reduce your work hours. If you are hospitalized within 60 days of losing your job, please contact the Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services patient billing office. We may be able to help you.
