Plumas District Hospital has chosen to assist patients who cannot otherwise afford health care by adopting the following: Help Financial Payment Plans, Prompt Pay Discount, Discount Payment Policy, and Charity Care Policies. With the rising cost of healthcare, patients with commercial insurance or Medicare may also benefit from these programs. Each program's details are listed below.

There are organizations that will help patients understand the billing and payment process.
