MedAssist Eligibility Services provides patient financial support solutions for Hudson County, New Jersey

MedAssist, is pleased to announce our partnership with CarePoint Health, a 360-degree-coordinated care hospital system in Hudson County, New Jersey. MedAssist began its partnership with CarePoint Health in fall 2014 to assist patients with enrollment for health insurance and financial assistance programs.

MedAssist works with patients onsite at CarePoint’s three facilities to determine if they meet criteria for assistance programs based on information shared during a screening interview process. MedAssist starts and completes applications for programs including Medicaid and charity assistance. The goal of MedAssist’s Eligibility services is to improve patients’ experiences with CarePoint facilities as well as lessen the financial impact felt by patients since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
