Each patient will have an initial determination done prior to sending the application and will be reviewed for other programs prior to the sending of the Financial Assistance application.
Central Washington Hospital will notify the applicant of its final determination within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the completed application and all required supporting documentation material. A patient may appeal a denial of eligibility for compassionate care by providing additional verification of income or family size to the Patient Services Manager within thirty (30) days of receipt of the initial notification.
