Am I eligible?
In order to qualify for financial assistance all of the following conditions must be met:
- The patient must be uninsured or, in certain circumstances, have limited insurance coverage.
- The patient must be unable to access other programs that would cover medical expenses.
- The patient's annual family income must be no more than 300 percent of the current year federal poverty guidelines.
- The patient must not have substantial cash assets.
- The patient must not have declined health insurance through an employer.
- The patient must not be ineligible for government sponsored coverage because of noncompliance with requirements.
- The service must be considered medically necessary (generally defined as urgent or emergent).
- The patient must live in the Novant Health service area.
- The application and supporting documentation must be submitted to the hospital business office or financial counseling department.
How will I know if I have been approved?
Once all requested documents are received the application will be reviewed. An approval or denial letter will be mailed to each applicant. The financial assistance application and documentation must be updated every six months, or when the patient's income or other key circumstances change. Each visit within the six month period will be reviewed for potential access to other programs.
This policy only applies to services rendered at a Novant Health facility. It does not apply to services rendered by any independent physicians or practitioners that are not employed by Novant Health. This includes but is not limited to anesthesiologists, radiologists and pathologists.
