Help with your medical bills

We can help you fill out the necessary paperwork to determine your eligibility for public assistance.

If you have a child younger than 19, he or she may be eligible for the state-funded All Kids program. Applications are available on the State of Illinois website in English or Spanish. Send your completed application to Patient Accounts, CGH Medical Center, 100 E. Le Fevre Road, Sterling, IL 61081.

Since obtaining care at CGH is not dependent on one's ability to pay, we offer a charitable program to help people who simply cannot afford to pay for care. You must provide the following information in order for CGH to determine the appropriate amount of help to apply to your account

  • Financial assistance application.
  • Proof of income for the last three months.
  • Copy of latest federal income tax return.
  • Copy of checking/savings statements for last three months.

We'll use that information to assess your case in accordance with the Community Services Administration Guidelines, which are published in the Federal Register and updated each spring.

If you don't qualify for charity care, you may be extended a self-pay discount of up to 25 percent of the total account balance. More information on this program is available by contacting us at 815.564.4620, downloading our Charity Assistance Packet in English or Spanish, or viewing our Financial Assistance Scale.
