Lake Health Self-Pay Policy
It is the policy of Lake Health that patients will be treated fairly and with respect regardless of their ability to pay for the services they received. To provide counseling to all uninsured patients, including help in understanding and applying for local, state and federal health care programs such as Medicaid and HCAP. To describe to patients without any third party health care coverage (governmental or private) that they may apply for charge reductions through the Lake Health Uninsured Charity Care program. To establish reasonable, interest-free payment mechanisms based on the patients ability to make payments.
Uninsured patients who do not qualify for Lake Health’s Charity care program will be offered a 30% prompt pay discount if payment is received within 30 days of the first patient statement or a payment plan is agreed upon.
