Mission Health | Financial Services | Financial Assistance | Uninsured Discount Policy
All self-pay patients, excluding those receiving elective cosmetic procedures, hospital designated self-pay flat rate procedures, and scheduled/discounted procedures for International Patients, will receive a managed care like discount, referred to as an "uninsured discount". The Uninsured Discount is limited to patients who have no third party payer source of payment or do not qualify for Medicaid, Charity or any other discount program the facility offers. The amount of the discount offered may vary by location based on state requirements, patient income levels and local rates.
At the time of service, patients will be asked to make payment in full or establish monthly payment arrangements on the patient liability amount.
Patients confirmed to be uninsured (or their responsible party) will be presented with an Uninsured Patient Information document that provides information on the Uninsured Discount Policy and other available discounts and payment options. This document will outline the process for uninsured discounts and inform the patient of additional account resolution options (i.e. monthly payments). The patient/responsible party will be asked to sign and date the document at the time of service.
