Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center Foundation’s Patient Assistance Program will serve to help our patients in times of need. It will cover the cost of transportation, lodging, medical equipment and other necessities for patients who do not have the means to pay for them themselves. This can be due to a variety of situations such as being uninsured, underinsured, lack of income or a major life event.
As one of two hospitals in a largely rural county, Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center is often a safety net provider for the uninsured and underinsured. In 2016 the medical center spent more than $10,000 on cab rides for patients who could not afford to leave the hospital after treatment or a procedure.
Established in January 2017, the Patient Assistance Fund will help eliminate some of the worry that is associated with a hospital stay. On an individual basis, our case management team will determine the need for financial assistance based on qualifying criteria.
By contributing to the Patient Assistance Fund, you can help a patient in need focus on what is most important: getting healthy and staying health.
