At WellSpan, it is our core belief that health care is one of the keys to a healthy community. Yet, in York and Adams counties, there are nearly 40,000 individuals who live without adequate health insurance.
This community health problem cannot be ignored and requires careful planning and forethought. Fortunately, WellSpan has done both.
We take measures to care for those who have no insurance and are unable to pay. We offer discounted care to individuals whose income falls within 300 percent of federal poverty guidelines. Additionally, all uninsured patients, regardless of whether they qualify for charity care, receive discounts similar to those offered by private insurance companies. We offer free care to patients who participate in our charity care program.
Together with our community partners, we support programs to take primary care and other services into urban and rural communities, improve access to oral health care and help people establish a “medical home” with a primary care physician.
