Financial Assistance Program
Winston Medical Center’s financial assistance program provides discounts to patients (up to 100 percent of hospital charges) who meet financial eligibility guidelines. All patients eligible for financial assistance will not be charged more for medically necessary care than the amounts generally billed to patients who have insurance.
A key provision of financial assistance requires the cooperation of the patient in providing health insurance information, applying for available government programs, completing a Winston Medical Center financial assistance application when needed, and providing any requested supporting documentation. Given the sensitive nature of these requests, all communications with the patient or family members will be handled in strict confidence and in a compassionate manner.
Winston Medical Center’s ability to provide financial assistance is consistent with our values of compassion and stewardship and complies with federal and state regulations. Nothing in our financial assistance policy, websites, or other financial assistance material constitutes an offer to any particular patient and creates no contractual rights or obligations.
