Lincoln Prairie can provide financial assistance to patients in need. We will extend medically necessary services at no cost, or at a reduced amount, to an individual who is eligible by meeting certain financial criteria. Charity Care decisions are based on the family’s “gross income,” which means gross earnings reportable to the federal government. Your family’s gross income cannot exceed six times the Federal Poverty Level. The Federal Poverty Level varies based on family size and is updated annually. Your family may also be eligible if you can you show extenuating financial circumstances. Please review and complete this form.
