Beebe Healthcare is a not-for-profit, community-based healthcare facility. It is hospital policy that no one will be denied medically necessary hospital services based upon the patient's ability to pay for those services. A public notice of the availability of financial assistance will be visible within the hospital and on our website. Beebe will comply with all federal, state, and contractual laws, regulations, and requirements.
The patient or guarantor has the ultimate financial responsibility for care received from Beebe Healthcare. Beebe will cooperate and assist all patients in the fulfillment of their financial responsibility. This cooperation includes payment arrangements, assistance with enrollment in public or private insurance programs, charity-based programs, financial assistance programs, or other third-party programs. Patients have the responsibility to provide timely and accurate information when seeking consideration under the Beebe Healthcare Charity and Financial Assistance Policy.
The focus of the Affordable Care Act is to provide affordable insurance for all. Due to federal mandates patients must first apply for insurance and provide proof of eligibility under the ACA prior to applying for Beebe’s financial assistance program. In certain circumstances there are patients who are ineligible or exempt from Insurance requirements under the Affordable Care Act or who are determined to be unable to pay existing Beebe balances under our payment plan guidelines and may need assistance on qualifying balances.
