FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE (CHARITY CARE) AND TRAUMA CARE. PROVIDING INPATIENT AND OUTPATIENT HEALTH CARE SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY REGARDLESS OF THE PATIENTS' ABILITY TO PAY. AS PART OF ADVOCATE ILLINOIS MASONIC MEDICAL CENTER'S (ADVOCATE ILLINOIS MASONIC) COMMUNITY HEALTH STRATEGY, THE MEDICAL CENTER IS COMMITTED TO PROMOTING INITIATIVES THAT ENHANCE ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE FOR THE UNINSURED AND UNDERINSURED. AN EXAMPLE OF THIS IS THE PROVISION OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. ADVOCATE ILLINOIS MASONIC OFFERS A VERY GENEROUS FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, REQUIRING NO PAYMENTS FROM THE PATIENTS MOST IN NEED, AND PROVIDING DISCOUNTS TO UNINSURED AND INSURED PATIENTS. FROM JANUARY 2019 TO MAY 2019, UNINSURED PATIENTS EARNING UP TO SIX TIMES THE FEDERAL POVERTY LEVEL (FPL), AND INSURED PATIENTS EARNING UP TO FOUR TIMES THE FPL WERE ELIGIBLE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A FULL OR PARTIAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE DISCOUNT. AS OF JUNE 2019, PATIENTS EARNING UP TO SIX TIMES THE FPL, AND INSURED PATIENTS EARNING UP TO TWO AND HALF TIMES THE FPL MAY QUALIFY FOR A FULL OR PARTIAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE DISCOUNT. ADDITIONALLY, A CATASTROPHIC ASSISTANCE DISCOUNT WAS ADDED FOR UNINSURED AND INSURED PATIENTS WHOSE INCOMES EXCEED THE TRADITIONAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE INCOME GUIDELINES AND HAVE OUTSTANDING PATIENT BALANCES OF $25,000 OR MORE FOR A SINGLE DATE OF SERVICE OR SUM OF SEVERAL DATES OF SERVICE. THESE PATIENTS MAY QUALIFY TO RECEIVE A FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE DISCOUNT THAT REDUCES THEIR OUTSTANDING BALANCE TO 25% OF THEIR NET INCOME. FOR UNINSURED PATIENTS, ADVOCATE WILL PRESUMPTIVELY PROVIDE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IF THE FINANCIAL STATUS HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY A THIRD PARTY. IN THESE CASES, THE PATIENT IS NOT REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A SEPARATE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE APPLICATION. IF PRESUMPTIVE CRITERIA ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR UNINSURED PATIENTS, FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE ELIGIBILITY IS AVAILABLE USING AN INCOME-BASED SCREENING. ADVOCATE EXTENDS ITS INCOME-BASED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE POLICY TO ITS INSURED PATIENTS AS WELL. BOTH UNINSURED AND INSURED REQUESTS ARE GIVEN CONSIDERATION BASED ON THE INDIVIDUAL'S EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES. ADVOCATE ILLINOIS MASONIC CONTINUES TO REVIEW AND REFINE ITS POLICY IN AN ONGOING EFFORT TO ENSURE THAT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO NEED HELP.THE MEDICAL CENTER MAINTAINS HIGHLY VISIBLE SIGNAGE AND BROCHURES IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES TO INFORM PATIENTS OF THE AVAILABILITY OF FINANCIAL HELP AND FINANCIAL COUNSELORS. INFORMATION ABOUT THE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND AN APPLICATION IS PROVIDED TO ALL UNINSURED PATIENTS DURING REGISTRATION AND IS MAILED TO THEM IN ADVANCE OF THE FIRST PATIENT BILLING. AFTER THAT, EACH UNINSURED PATIENT'S BILL INCLUDES SUMMARY INFORMATION REGARDING THE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.
