You May Qualify for the
Grant County Health Plan (GCHP)
This service is provided by Grant County for its residents. It offers assistance with medical bills for services provided by Gila Regional Medical Center as well as ambulance services.
This includes some physician bills for services received in a Sole Community Provider hospital. The Grant County Health Plan will not cover elective surgery, medical supplies, medication, home health services, and outpatient physical, occupational, and speech therapies.
The Application is a simple form. All applicants must supply the following with their application:
- proof of all household income for a period of twelve months prior to the date services were received. This can be the most recent Federal tax form, Social Security Benefit letter or another form of income proof.
proof of residency in Grant County for a 90 day period preceding the date of services. This can be three consecutive months of utility bills or notarized letters from two people who are not family members.
- All applications must be submitted to the Grant County Health Plan within 90 days from date of service.
Once approved the applicant and eligible family members are considered current for one year from the application date. You must reapply at that time to maintain coverage with the GCHP.
At the time of your admission to the hospital, satisfactory financial arrangements need to be made for paying your hospital account. Once your hospital insurance coverage is verified, a deposit may be necessary to cover your deductible and /or co-pay insurance portion.
We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard and
Visa cards for payment of your account.
We may be able to help if you worry about paying the bill for your care in full. It is important that you speak with us if paying your bill or balances after insurance will be difficult.
