Norton Healthcare is waiving copays and deductibles for furloughed federal government employees in need of urgent or emergency care.
Norton Healthcare announced today it will waive copays and deductibles for furloughed federal government employees in need of urgent or emergency care. This includes visits to 14 area Norton Immediate Care Centers, Norton eCare eVisits and video visits, and emergency departments at Norton Audubon Hospital, Norton Brownsboro Hospital, Norton Hospital, Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital, Norton Children’s Hospital and Norton Children’s Medical Center.
Health care providers at Norton Immediate Care Centers, eCare or emergency rooms provide care when you need it.
“As the federal government shutdown continues, we want to step up and do our part to ensure that the emergency health care needs of government employees and their families are met,” said Russell F. Cox, president and chief executive officer of Norton Healthcare. “We hope that this will lessen the financial worries of those who are furloughed.”
This program begins Jan. 21. Furloughed employees will be asked to present their government ID or a current federal insurance plan card when they receive care.
