    I understand that if the provider rendering services to me, be it either the physician
and /or the facility, is not contracted with my insurance company, that it is possible the
check for their services may be sent to me, I respectfully request, however, for the
provider(s) listed below, the check(s) be sent directly to the providers (s). I do not want
the check, under any circumstances, to be sent to me, I will, therefore, expect that any
and all payments will be sent directly to my provider unless I hear differently from one
of your representatives.

the check may be written to me. I understand you are billing my insurance company as
a courtesy to me but the money paid by the insurance company belongs entirely to you.
I, therefore, agree to immediately, but certainly no later than 48 hours upon receipt of
any such money, forward this money directly to you. I will make no attempt to
negotiate what portion I sent to you. In any event, I acknowledge and agree that any

Dear MD Surgical Solutions,

This is the medical hardship letter to state my inability to pay the bill for the procedure
performed on ______________.
Please understand that this is neither a refusal to pay nor a dispute of the charges, but
simply an explanation of my financial situation.

My current income is just enough to cover basic necessities and by paying your charges as
required, would lead to a serious financial hardship for my family and myself. With that
said, I would like to propose waiving the amount I owe you.

I am truly hoping for your favorable response.


Thank you for your understanding.

FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS: No alcohol, aspirin, or making any important decisions

antibiotic (Neosporin®) is ok if you have used it before, but some people
are allergic.
5) Apply a new Band-Aid or dressing after applying ointment. Keep wound site elevated.
6) Ice packs (or frozen peas) may be applied for pain or swelling for the first 48-72 hours.

20 minutes. (use watch or clock to time). If bleeding does not stop, contact our office or go the
nearest emergency room.

MEDICATIONS:
Please avoid aspirin or medications containing aspirin ie: ibuprofen or Advil
for 3-4 days following surgery. You may use extra strength Tylenol for pain (2 tablets every 6
hours). Take the oral antibiotics as prescribed by the doctor.

Please call the office promptly if you develop any of the following symptoms:
1) Prominent redness, swelling, or white discharge at the surgical site.
2) Fever over 101 F.
3) Bleeding as noted above or extensive bruising. (Some bruising is expected)

In Case of Emergency, please call the office immediately at (888) 558-
