Meet Your Financial Support Team
Harrison has structured a multifaceted approach for your financial support. It is designed to assign the most qualified personnel to best assist you with your financial challenges so you can concentrate on your health and recovery.

Financial Counselors

A financial counselor meets with the patient initially to confidentially speak with the patient, the family and/or the patient representative to understand the patient’s current financial situation. The Financial Counselor completes a basic screening tool, which will aid in determining financial options for the patient and a potential course of action.

The financial counselor will either continue to work directly with the patient if an opportunity is present after initial assessment or will refer the patient to the most appropriate person within Harrison to further assist the patient and his/her family. This referral may be to a Cardon Outreach representative or to a Financial Assistance specialist.

Financial Assistance Specialist
The Financial Counselor may also refer the patient to a Financial Assistance Specialist. Financial Assistance Specialists aid the patient in the application process for financial assistance directly from Harrison Medical Center. The Financial Counselor will work with the patient/family to complete the application and identify any other paperwork necessary to make a decision. Financial Counselors will evaluate the completed application and assist in processing that application up to the point a decision to discount the charges can be made.
