El Camino Hospital is committed to providing financial assistance or financial need discounts to patients who are uninsured, underinsured, ineligible for government programs, and are otherwise unable to pay for their medical services. El Camino Hospital strives to ensure that the financial capacity of our patients does not prevent them from seeking or receiving medical care at El Camino Hospital.
Patients seeking help are required to complete an application, and they must provide a denial letter from the MediCal program and proof of income to confirm they do not exceed the federal poverty level guidelines. A customer service representative will help determine eligibility for government and community programs that may help cover medical expenses.
El Camino Hospital also extends a 75 percent cash discount to patients without insurance who choose to pay with cash, or to patients receiving services not covered by insurance who choose to pay with cash, or patients who choose to pay cash for services in lieu of billing their insurance.
Our Customer Services Representatives are available to answer your questions. You can reach our department by calling 650-940-7220.
