HMNH will provide without discrimination, care for emergency medical conditions (EMTALA) to individuals regardless of their eligibility under the Financial Assistance Program (FAP). HMNH will not engage in activities demanding emergency department patients pay before receiving treatment for emergency medical conditions or permit debt collection activities in respective departments where EMTALA applies. It is the policy of Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital (HMNH) to comply with the State/Federal regulations including but not limited to Assembly Bill 774 and IRS 501(r) related to the discounting of patient bills as reflected in the policy titled: The Financial Assistance Program. This program covers medically necessary services. Medicare defines medically necessary care as “health-care services or supplies needed to prevent, diagnose, or treat an illness, injury, condition, disease, or its symptoms and that meet accepted standards of medicine.” Nonprofit credit counseling services may be available in your area or the City of Santa Clarita.
