McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital's policy is to provide financial options and assistance to those patients who lack the financial ability to pay, to those who do not have hospitalization insurance, and to those that have balances due including deductibles and co-payments. Payment is expected at the time of service. All attempts will be made to establish what will be owed in order to advise the patient of the amount due when services are rendered. Patients will be provided multiple options in which to pay their account balances.
If payment cannot be made in full at the time of service, financial counseling will be provided to help the patient qualify for payment arrangements or financing alternatives.
