Financial Assistance is available to those patients who are in need of help to pay their account. Assistance is based on the guarantor’s financial status. In order to determine this, the guarantor will need to complete a Financial Assistance application that includes, but is not limited to, proof of income and assets. Please contact a Patient Financial Advocate to complete a Financial Assistance Application, (828) 262-4413.
