Financial Assistance Policy
If Laser and Surgery Center believes that you have health insurance and/or HMO coverage(s) that may cover some or all of the Services, Laser and Surgery Center may initiate contact with them to determine your cost-sharing responsibilities for Laser and Surgery Center’s bill. You may contact them directly as well for additional information concerning your cost-sharing responsibilities. If Laser and Surgery Center determines that you have cost-sharing responsibilities for Laser and Surgery Center’s bill, in accordance with Laser and Surgery Center’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. Laser and Surgery Center’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 Laser and Surgery Center, 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 Laser and Surgery Center to be “charity care.” There is no formal application process for obtaining “charity care” at Laser and Surgery Center. Laser and Surgery Center’s standard collection policy is to produce and send one or more bills to patients for their cost sharing amount.

Services may be provided in this health care facility by Laser and Surgery Center as well as by other health care providers who may separately bill the patient and who may or may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as Laser and Surgery Center. You may request a more personalized estimate of charges from these other health care providers by contacting the health care providers directly.
