Decision & Notification
The financial counselors review all applications once a month. After you have submitted your financial interview form and required documentation, a counselor will base the decision upon the general criteria categories mentioned above. The counselor can approve or deny adjustments for financial assistance under $25,000. For adjustments greater than $25,000, the decision will go to the director of revenue management. The vice president of finance makes the final determination for all adjustments.
You will receive written notice of approval or denial of your request for financial assistance within approximately 30 days from the time we receive your completed application and supportive documentation. If you are denied, it means that you did not meet the criteria by which to qualify for financial assistance and you are responsible for payment of the care you received. If you wish to appeal, you may submit a revised application with new and verifiable information to the director of revenue management. If you have not heard from us in 30 days after returning your application, or you need help in understanding it, please call patient financial services.
Concord Hospital will not discriminate in the determination of financial assistance eligibility on the basis of race, color, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, marital status, creed, age, sex or disability.
