At Welsh Mountain Home we value providing low cost services and programs to our residents. One program that we became aware about recently is Ephrata Cares Program through Ephrata Hospital which is a part of the WellSpan network. By submitting an application annually and meet the income qualifications a resident is able to lower than hospital bill by 33-100% of covered services. Most residents qualify at the 100% reduction level if your income is less than $23,340 per year which is $1,945 per month. The majority of your liquid assets need to be depleted in order to qualify. Some of the other area hospitals in the area have financial assistance programs available too. More information can be obtained by calling 717-738-6261 or at one of the links below.
