Applicability to Emergency and Other Physicians
Emergency physicians who provide emergency services at the Hospital are
also required to provide discounts to uninsured patients or patients with
high medical costs who are at or below 350 percent of the federal poverty
level as appropriate to maintain their financial and operational integrity.
In general, the Hospital will require doctors who staff the emergency
room and who serve on the emergency call panel to maintain contracted
status with the plans that also contract with the Hospital and to offer
discounts to patients consistent with this Charity Care and Discount Policy.
