  • Attempt to make physicians and patients in its local community aware of its services and encourage the use of those services.
  • Provide charity care to uninsured persons and persons without the ability to pay the entire charge for services.
  • Develop, maintain and update, as necessary, a policy and process for serving uninsured persons and persons without the ability to pay the entire charge, and will develop, maintain and update a sliding fee scale considerate of the means of such persons, for use in such cases.
  • Promote the accessibility of its services for all persons in need of these services, with particular emphasis on improving access for traditionally under-served populations, including ethnic minorities and persons of low-income status and operate at times that promote accessibility.
  • Attempt to provide culturally-sensitive services, including services that assist individuals to overcome physical and language barriers, and encourage patients to freely offer opinions regarding how accessibility and service can be improved.
