Patient Notice of Financial Assistance for the Uninsured and/or Underinsured

Guthrie is proud of its mission to provide quality care to all who need it.

If you do not have health insurance or worry that you may not be able to pay for part or all of your care, we may be able to help. Guthrie provides financial aid to patients based on their income, assets, and financial needs. In addition, we may be able to help you get free or low-cost health insurance or work with you to arrange a manageable payment plan.

Federal and state laws require all hospitals / clinics to seek payment for care provided. This means we could ultimately turn unpaid bills over to a collections agency, which could affect your credit status. Therefore, it is important that you let us know if there may be a problem paying your bill.

Applications should be mailed to the following address:
