Advantia Health Offers Support to Furloughed Federal Workers During Government Shutdown
Practices will extend payment plans to furloughed federal workers who are able to demonstrate difficulty meeting their co-pay and deductible requirements
Rosslyn, VA, January 17, 2019 – Today, Advantia Health has announced that its practices will extend payment plans to furloughed federal workers with a demonstrated need to meet their copay and deductible requirements. Advantia Health is transforming healthcare by building an ecosystem of providers and resources that support women in their own health and that of their families. With more than 140 providers across Maryland, Virginia and soon Washington, D.C., Advantia Health currently provides convenient, coordinated and quality care to more than 250,000 patients in the greater Washington metropolitan area.
In response to the government shutdown, Advantia Health CEO Sean Glass issued the following statement:
“At Advantia, health is more than a business for us. We are hard at work transforming health delivery and providing unmatched care for our patients. Our mission is to put women at the center of healthcare and to support them in making decisions for themselves and their families.
As the government shutdown extends into its fourth week, and with many of our patients living and working in the greater Washington DC metropolitan area, we have grown increasingly concerned that some may be forced to make difficult decisions about their healthcare. We understand that some patients may have recently encountered financial challenges due to the federal furlough. We want all those affected know that we care and we want to help.
- Advantia will not turn away any patient – existing or new – seeking care.
- Advantia will provide payment plans so that anyone demonstrating short-term financial need can repay their co-pay or deductible as soon as they are able.
- We will work with you to ensure you get the care you need.
No patient impacted by the government furlough should have to second guess whether they can afford a copay or deductible to get the care they need. At Advantia, we have and will continue to support anyone who suddenly becomes financially vulnerable.
Our promise to you is to be right by your side, every step of the way.
