Charity Care Program

Effective October 1, 2022

Andrews Center (the Center) is committed to providing free or reduced cost care to persons who have healthcare needs and are uninsured, underinsured, or otherwise unable to pay for medically necessary care based on their individual financial situation.  The Center strives to ensure that the financial limitations do not prohibit clients in need of healthcare from seeking or receiving care.

If you are not eligible for coverage under government healthcare programs and your financial condition is such that you are not able to pay for services, you may be eligible for assistance under the Center’s charity care program. To be considered for charity care, you must complete a financial assessment, provide requested financial verification documents, and be screened by our consumer benefits financial counselor to determine eligibility. If determined eligible for assistance, you may receive needed services at no charge or at discounted amount.

The Board of Trustees of Andrews Center has established the following policy for the provision of client charity care.

The Full Charity Care Policy can be found here.
