Overcoming Economic Factors
Obesity is a serious concern because it is associated with poorer mental health outcomes, reduced quality of life, and the leading causes of death, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer.
In partnership with CoreLife and consistent with the mission, CoreCares is committed to providing charity care and financial assistance to persons who present a distinct need for weight loss healthcare and are uninsured, underinsured, or otherwise unable to pay. Patients may apply for assistance online or at any CoreLife center; these applications are then reviewed by an internal team on a case by case basis. The review consists of multiple factors including, but not limited to, financial situation, medical necessity, and commitment to health. CoraCares and CoreLife are committed to treating patients who have financial needs with the same dignity, compassion, and consideration that is extended to all its patients. Assistance is provided in a variety of ways:
- Interest free or discounted payment plans
- Discounted programs
- Free programs
