Catawba Valley Medical Center provides needed health care services to anyone regardless of that person’s ability to pay. CVMC’s charity care policy is designed to assist uninsured and underinsured patients who are financially unable to pay for healthcare services.

Uncompensated care services, as required by law, are limited to specific guidelines as defined by Catawba Valley Medical Center. Elective services will not be eligible for charity care adjustments. Charity Care adjustments are secondary to all other available financial resources including insurance, government programs, third party liability and any other source of account payment.
