|Financial Assistance Policy Dissemination|
|Ohio requires nonprofit hospitals to disseminate financial assistance information as a condition of participation in the Hospital Care Assurance Program.
Hospitals that elect to participate in the Hospital Care Assurance Program must post notices in the admissions area, the business office, and the emergency room that specify the rights of persons with income at or below the federal poverty level to receive, without charge to the individual, basic, medically necessary hospital-level services at the hospital.
