Hospital Discounted Care limits the amounts that low-income patients can be billed for health care services at hospitals and emergency rooms. It also limits amounts billed from providers who work at hospitals and emergency rooms.

Hospitals must give patients the chance to apply for discounted care when they have services at the hospital. If the patient qualifies, their billed amounts will be limited to the rates set by the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Department).
