Reading Hospital’s new Commitment to Providing Affordable Care (C2PAC) program offers financial counseling and provides discounts for uninsured patients.
C2PAC makes information and counseling services more readily available to all qualified patients. Patients are encouraged to enter the C2PAC program as early in the treatment process as possible. Patients are encouraged to enter the C2PAC program as early in the treatment process as possible. All C2PAC patients will be afforded the opportunity to meet with certified patient financial counselors and resource eligibility specialists to determine eligibility for programs such as Medical Assistance, Disability, COBRA, PA Fair Care, Charity Care, and receive information on available community programs. C2PAC includes urgent, non-elective, emergent services, and several other pre-approved and pre-screened services.
The hospital commits to notifying patients of their financial obligations within 24 hours of service, following financial counseling. The hospital also extends additional discounts above the C2PAC discounts under the following guidelines.
Implantables, high-cost drugs, DME and contracted services will be provided to the patient at hospital cost. All physician services provided by private physicians are not subject to the C2PAC discount at this time, and patients will need to contact the physician directly to determine any physician fees.
