Salem Health is committed to making sure our patients get the hospital care they need regardless of their ability to pay for that care. Providing health care to those who cannot afford to pay is part of our mission, so we provide free and discounted care to eligible patients. You may qualify for free or discounted care based on family size and income, even if you have health insurance.

We also offer over-the-phone screenings for financial assistance and the Oregon Health Plan (OHP). You can also apply for OHP by calling their application center at 800-699-9075.
