Charity Discount Program
Delaware State offers Medicaid and Healthcare Connections Programs to assist uninsured patients. Patients must first be screened for these programs in order to be eligible for Beebe’s Charity or Financial Assistance Program.
The focus of the Affordable Care Act is to provide affordable insurance for all. Due to federal mandates patients must first apply for insurance and provide proof of eligibility under the ACA prior to applying for Beebe’s financial assistance program. In certain circumstances there are patients who are ineligible or exempt from Insurance requirements under the Affordable Care Act or who are determined to be unable to pay existing Beebe balances under our payment plan guidelines and may need assistance on qualifying balances.
We allow patients to provide Uninsured-Certification or Self Attestation of ineligibility or exemption from Insurance Market Place Mandate per Affordable Care Act.
