Financial Assistance Policy
If Advanced Center for Surgery believes that you have health insurance and/or HMO coverage(s) that may cover some or all of the Services, Advanced Center for Surgery may initiate contact with them to determine your cost-sharing responsibilities for Advanced Center for Surgery’s bill. You may contact them directly as well for additional information concerning your cost-sharing responsibilities. If Advanced Center for Surgery determines that you have cost-sharing responsibilities for Advanced Center for Surgery’s bill, in accordance with Advanced Center for Surgery’s financial assistance policies, you will be required to pay your cost-sharing responsibilities in full on or before the date that Services are provided. Advanced Center for Surgery’s financial assistance policies are that if you are unable to pay your cost-sharing responsibilities in full on or before the date that Services are provided, because you believe you are medically indigent or you are not covered by any health insurance or HMO, then upon request Advanced Center for Surgery, in its sole discretion, may offer you a discount on the amount due and/or offer a payment plan. Any such discount is considered by Advanced Center for Surgery to be “charity care.” There is no formal application process for obtaining “charity care” at Advanced Center for Surgery. Advanced Center for Surgery’s standard collection policy is to produce and send one or more bills to patients for their cost sharing amount.
