Our billing and collection policies are consistent with our mission and values. When you receive a bill from FCHC, it covers the services provided by the hospital. You may receive separate bills from your personal physician, emergency physician, surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist or other healthcare professional.
FCHC offers a 15% Prompt Pay Discount to anyone paying their bill in full within 15 days of receipt of their hospital statement. Your first statement will reflect the amount of your discount.

As a final solution, FCHC utilizes collection agencies only as a last resort when:
- Patients have the ability to pay some portion of their healthcare expenses but refuse to do so.
- Patient is not meeting the required monthly payments as established on their payment plan.
- Patients refuse to work with us to determine if they qualify for free or discounted care through federal, state, local or hospital assistance programs.
- We are unable to locate the person responsible for the hospital bill.
