Discount Policies

BSA Prompt Pay Discount

If you pay your hospital bill at the time of service you may qualify for a discount. Please contact BSA to determine the terms of the discount and the amount which you may be entitled to by calling 806-212-6006 or 1-800-535-3506.

The prompt pay discount cannot be used in combination with any other offer or discount, such as health care insurance contractual adjustments, uninsured patient discounts and customer service adjustments.

Uninsured Patient Discounts

In keeping with the BSA mission and core values, all uninsured patients will be treated fairly and with respect at all times, regardless of their ability to pay.

If you are uninsured you may qualify for discounts for services you receive while in the hospital. These discounts will be provided in order to ensure you receive quality healthcare.

You may qualify for financial assistance if you are unable to pay for all or a portion of your charges. For more information on how to apply for financial assistance please call the Business Office at 806-212-6006 or at 1-800-535-3506 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A representative will help you find your best option for payment.

Once you have contacted the Business Office, a representative will help you apply for government assistance if eligible or other forms of financial assistance. Applications for financial assistance are available in the Admitting or Business Office.
