What Doctors Are Covered?
Not all doctors who practice at Huntington Hospital take part in our Financial Assistance Policy. To see if your doctor is included, review the Financial Assistance Provider Listing of participating and nonparticipating doctors
If your doctor has a “yes” in the first column, they are included. If your doctor has a “no” in the first column, be sure to ask if they have their own financial assistance policy. Whether or not your doctor is listed as covered by the policy, it is a good idea to check with your doctor’s office directly to ensure you receive the most current and accurate information.
There are organizations that will help you understand the billing and payment process. See the Health Consumer Alliance at healthconsumer.org.
Huntington Hospital takes part in a number of government aid programs that are not part of the Financial Assistance Policy:
- Healthy Families
- Covered California
You may also be eligible for subsidized coverage through the California Health Benefit Exchange (Covered California).
