Parham Surgery Center has a Charity Discount Policy designed for uninsured or underinsured patients who do not qualify for other governmental medical assistance programs. Patients can request information regarding this policy from our Business Office (804) 285-4763. To qualify for the Charity Discount Policy, patients will be asked to complete a simple form and provide additional income and resource verification information. Patients who have no known or visible means of income and/or meet financial hardship guidelines of 200% of the Federal Poverty Guideline will be eligible for the Charity Discount Policy. We also have an Uninsured Discount Program that is designed for uninsured or underinsured patients who do not qualify for Medicaid, charity care, or any other discount programs offered at our center. All patients will receive the Uninsured Discount unless they qualify for a Charity Discount. These patients receive a bill that reflects a discount from total charges.
We will be happy to direct you to governmental sources of medical assistance, including Medicaid, CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) and other state and local programs. For patients who have financial responsibility for their care with us, we will gladly work with them to establish a payment plan based on the amount they owe as well as their financial status. Translation services are available for non-English speaking patients.
