Care for All in Need
If you are unable to pay for medical care, we may be able to help. SOMC participates in the Ohio Hospital Care Assurance Program (HCAP), which provides free basic medically necessary care to eligible patients. We also provide charity care to patients who are unable to pay through our SOMC Caring Program. SOMC can happily assist you in applying for these programs.
