At Central Florida Health, we know that healthcare can sometimes be confusing. When people have the information they need before receiving medical treatment, they become smart and happy consumers. The more accurate and comprehensive the information, the better healthcare works. This is healthcare transparency. Our goal is to help you understand your options, care, and bills from Central Florida Health and other healthcare providers.
Important information for our patients:
- Patients may request estimated charges.
- Other providers may bill the patient separately for services performed.
- Providers may not participate with facility insurers (out-of-network).
- Patients should contact practitioners to determine network status.
Financial assistance policy
The Central Florida Health financial assistance program was established to help patients with limited financial resources to pay for care provided to them.
Our patient financial services team can help you determine your eligibility for the financial assistance program. As a part of the eligibility process, you will be asked to provide a confidential financial statement and income certification (including a credit report and other documents necessary for verifying income).

Charity care policy
It is the policy of Central Florida Health (CFH) to provide emergency care to all patients regardless of ability to pay. CFH hospitals allocate resources to identify charity cases and provide uncompensated care based upon the information submitted at the time of application for charity care by patients or their legal representative or through the use of other criteria-based methods to determine charity eligibility.
Charity adjustments may only be granted to patients receiving non-elective care. Charity adjustments may be applied to approved accounts for uninsured and underinsured patients based on the patient’s total gross family income (family unit) and the patient’s willful cooperation in applying for Medicaid or other available coverage.
To qualify for charity care at CFH, one must meet established medical necessity, identification, income and assets (for medical indigence), and residency criteria.
