For Patients Step 3 - Financial Screening

Application Process:


Once you have received the recommended plan of care and associated Medical Services
Cost Estimate, the International Services Department will work closely with you to:

  • Verify insurance coverage and identify any restrictions, limitations or copayments required.
  • Obtain the appropriate Letter of Guarantee from your sponsor.
  • Review the costs identified with the proposed treatment plan and or any changes to the plan once the child is seen by a CMH physician.

The Letter of Guarantee or proof of insurance coverage must be provided to the International Services Department at least 5 days in advance of the child's first visit.

If no insurance coverage or sponsorship can be verified, the Medical Services Cost Estimate must be paid in advance…

While at CMH you will be informed of any additional medical costs. Arrangements for payment can be discussed with the International Services staff.
