WACO -- Ever wish for a break in health care costs?
Well all you have to do is ask
For those with inflating health care bills, there are several opportunities for discounts.
If you're uninsured, Providence hospital in Waco offers a 40 percent discount off of bill charges and there's also a charity program, for those who qualify, that may help ease the financial pain.
"If they qualify either as financially indigent or medically indigent, then they can also qualify for partial or full coverage of their bill under our charity care patient financial assistance policy," said Karen Richardson, CFO of Providence Healthcare Network.
Officials said the best time to ask about these offers is while with your doctor before treatment.
