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