|In fulfilling its charitable mission, Halifax Regional recognizes that medical care is needed for patients who are unable to pay for their services. We have developed a Medical Financial Assistance and Collections Program to assure that patients who are unable to pay for care receive emergency medical services. We are committed to serving the healthcare needs of our community.
We offer Medical Financial Assistance for anyone who qualifies and may have a problem paying their bill. Our program includes finding alternative programs that may pay for services, offering monthly payment arrangements and writing-off approved charges.
Our Medical Financial Assistance program provides for the review and validation of financial information provided by the applicant to determine if guidelines are met. We use the Federal Poverty Guidelines to determine the qualification and assistance for each applicant on a sliding scale basis up to 100% of the charges. We also determine on an individual basis the assets, obligations, and catastrophic circumstances of an applicant.
Patients who have difficulty paying their bill should contact a financial counselor to make payment arrangements or apply for Medical Financial Assistance. Choose the number based on your last name:
