Request for charity care from public mission after pressure from patient advocates

ASHEVILLE — Pressure from patient advocates on HCA Healthcare paid off Nov. 17 when the company made a sample of its charitable care financial assistance request public online on the Mission Health website.

Mission is perhaps the first of all HCA hospital systems – there are more than 180 in its network in the US and UK – to make this document immediately available online for patients.

The Application is a two-page form that eligible patients can use to request waiver of medical bills under HCA’s Charitable Care Policy.

After:Despite requests from the patient advocate, the HCA mission has yet to make the request for charitable care public.

The move follows a partnership that began in July with leaders of social media group WNC Mountain Diseases and medical debt solutions organization Dollar For.
