Charity Care Policy

Southwest Medical Center is dedicated to ensuring that emergency and other medically necessary care is accessible to all patients, regardless of ability to pay, ability to qualify for financial assistance, or the availability of third-party coverage.

In compliance with applicable State and Federal law, Southwest Medical Center has adopted our Financial Assistance Policy (FAP).  Our FAP is the basis for calculating amounts charged to patients, the method for applying for financial assistance, the actions that may be taken in the event of nonpayment, and a list of the individual providers delivering care in the hospitals that specifies which are covered by this FAP and which are not.
