Norton Healthcare to waive ER copays, deductibles for government workers

Louisville, Ky.-based Norton Healthcare will assist furloughed government workers needing emergency medical care by waiving their copays and deductibles, according to the Courier Journal.

Effective Jan. 21, the billing change extends to 14 of Norton's immediate care centers and emergency rooms at six hospitals. It also applies to online and video visits.

"As the federal government shutdown continues, we want to step up and do our part to ensure that the emergency healthcare needs of government employees and their families are met," Russell F. Cox, president and CEO of Norton, said in a statement to the Courier Journal. "We hope that this will lessen the financial worries of those who are furloughed."
