Financial Assistance Policy
Financial Assistance for Uninsured Patients
If you are unable to pay your bill, please contact us at the telephone number or address below to see if you are eligible for financial assistance. Each patient's need for financial assistance is evaluated according to the level of his/her household income, in light of relevant facts and circumstances, such as reported income, assets, liabilities, expenses, and other available resources. Free care is available to patients whose household income is 200% or below the federal poverty level. See here for the current federal poverty guidelines published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The complete financial assistance policy, along with an application for financial assistance, can be found at here in English and here in Spanish. Paper copies are also available at the patient registration area of the Port Warwick Surgery Center and will be mailed free-of-charge to a patient upon request:
