Tax Season Discount
January 1 - April 30
What is the Tax Season Discount?
Tax Season Discount is the 25% reduction of the patient's outstanding balance if the entire balance on the account is paid in full by April 30. It is offered to all individuals with an outstanding balance on accounts created for care delivered prior to December 31.
What accounts can I apply the Tax Season Discount?
Any private pay balance incurred prior to December 31 is eligible for the Tax Season Discount. Private pay means the balance remaining after primary and secondary insurances have been paid. This also includes uninsured and non-covered charges. Accounts that have been placed with an external collection agency do not qualify for this discount.
