  1. Children’s Healthcare facility charges related to co-insurance can be submitted to Cynthia L. Daniels by the 15th of each month.  Please submit each invoice along with the Explanation of Benefits statement (EOB) from your primary insurance via email or fax. Email clyons2@emory.edu or fax to 404-686 4889. After verification of eligibility the payment will be sent to Children’s for posting by the end of the month. The request for Children’s Healthcare payments will be only processed on a monthly basis. Children’s will not bill the Stiles Bradley Fund, this request must be sent to Cynthia Daniels by the parent or guardian.  
  1. Should you receive billings that do not reflect payment by the Stiles Bradley Fund, call Spiritual Health at Emory at 404-686-5498 and speak with Cynthia L Daniels. You will receive assistance from a person who knows the Emory system and can work with you to resolve the difficulty.
