Financial Assistance Policy

If Riverside Park Surgicenter believes that you have health insurance and/or HMO coverage(s) that may cover some or all of the Services, Riverside Park Surgicenter may initiate contact with them to determine your cost-sharing responsibilities for Riverside Park Surgicenter’s bill. You may contact them directly as well for additional information concerning your cost-sharing responsibilities. If Riverside Park Surgicenter determines that you have cost-sharing responsibilities for Riverside Park Surgicenter’s bill, in accordance with Riverside Park Surgicenter’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. Riverside Park Surgicenter’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 Riverside Park Surgicenter, 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 Riverside Park Surgicenter to be “charity care.” There is no formal application process for obtaining “charity care” at Riverside Park Surgicenter.
