The Hospital Care Assurance Program (HCAP) is the Ohio
Department of Job and Family Services' mechanism for meeting the
federal requirement to provide additional payments to hospitals
which provide a disproportionate share of uncompensated services to
the indigent and uninsured.
For hospital services provided by Lima Memorial Health System on
or after May 22, 1992, a person may be eligible for basic medically
necessary hospital services at no charge if their income is at or
below the federal poverty guidelines in accordance with Ohio
Revised Code (occurred) section 5112.17. Any account that has
occurred within the last three years could be eligible for
HCAP based on the patients income and family size.
