Financial Services, Pricing Transparency and Charity Care
Beginning January 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services along with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services require hospitals to provide standard charges. This information is limited charge data only. The information provides minimal information when understanding what your final out-of-pocket cost will be.

Appleton Area Heath uses the Federal Poverty Income Guideline for the initial framework of Charity Care eligibility. Patients must apply for Medical Assistance with the county prior to applying for Charity Care. If qualified, the balance will be discounted or adjusted in full based on the sliding fee schedule.
