As part of its mission and commitment to the community, The Breastfeeding Success Company provides financial assistance to patients who qualify for assistance pursuant to The Breastfeeding Success Company’s Financial Assistance Program.
Established discount guidelines are utilized to determine what amount, if any, will qualify for financial assistance. The level of financial assistance will be based on the eligible patient’s classification of financial or medical need or for uninsured patients.
- Medically Indigent Patients: Generally, qualifying patients with an income that exceeds 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, but whose medical bills after payment by all third parties exceed 5% of their Total Yearly Income and who are unable to pay the remaining bill may qualify for a 50% discount.
- Financially Indigent Patients: Generally, qualifying patients with income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines will receive a 100% discount.
- Uninsured Patients: The Breastfeeding Success Company considers a patient to be an “uninsured patient” if (a) the patient lacks insurance, or (b) the patient’s insurance does not cover the specific The Breastfeeding Success Company service being provided to the patient. It is BFS’s policy to provide all uninsured patients a percentage discount based on the patient’s total yearly income and household size.
