Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Due to the current shutdown of the Federal government, Bartlett Regional Hospital is implementing a temporary payment deferral program to assist patients impacted by the impasse.
Bartlett Regional Hospital will allow federally employed patients to apply for a deferred payment plan that will place a “hold” on all eligible accounts during this time. Patients that qualify for the program will not be considered for bill collection during the duration of the shutdown. Such accounts will not accrue late fees or interest.
Upon the end of the shutdown, the account holder will have 30 days to either pay their bill in full or to make payment arrangements with our business office.
To qualify for the deferment program, a patient must be a federal employee or the spouse of a federal employee and provide proof of federal employment.
The patient will need to make the request for consideration either by phone or in person at the hospital’s business office. Eligibility will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and determination will be made at that time.
To request consideration for this program or with further questions, contact Collection Supervisor, Rachel Wasserman at 796-8826, Business Office Director Tami Lawson-Churchill at 796-8435 or visit the hospital business office.
