Charity Care

We work had to ensure that quality healthcare is available to everyone we serve. We recognize that medical expenses are often large, unplanned and create further stress at a time when your primary concern is health rather than financial issues. That is why we offer a number of flexible payment plans designed to help you pay your charges over a period of time.

We understand that some patients do not have insurance, or are underinsured and find it difficult to make a payment. We will be happy to assist you in determining if you are eligible for financial assistance through our charity care program.

Good Faith Estimate

Under federal law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your healthcare provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or contact us.
