Financial Assistance

It is the policy of Five Rivers Medical Center to provide services to all patients regardless of their ability to pay.

This Financial Assistance Policy seeks to provide relief to private pay and Medicaid exhausted benefits patients who have open accounts with the Medical Center. These services are available to all patients of our hospital and related healthcare programs. Hospital discounts will be applied based on the scale in our Financial Assistance Application.

Situation changes can affect a patient’s eligibility (death of a spouse or loss of job). This could change the status of any account where financial assistance has been denied in the past. The patient would need to reapply for financial assistance. If the patient is living in a household other than family, they must show how this household is contributing to their livelihood. Patients who exceed the income guidelines may be reconsidered when special circumstances apply.
