Marshall Medical Center
Patient Billing Information
Marshall Medical Center (MMC) is a not-for-profit system with a mission to serve our region with clinical excellence and compassionate care. In service to this mission, MMC is committed to providing medically necessary services to patients regardless of their ability to pay. This financial assistance policy is intended to be in compliance with applicable federal and state laws for our service area.
For patients and patient guarantors with limited financial resources, MMC has an established financial assistance program to help provide relief for the cost of medically necessary care.
Patients of MMC with annual family incomes of less than 250% of the federal poverty level, and without sufficient assets available to meet patient payment obligations, will be eligible for MMC financial assistance. (Visit http://aspe.hhs.gov/ website of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for current poverty level guidelines.)
Type of Assistance
Family income, assets, and medical expenses will be considered when making an eligibility determination on financial assistance. Free care is available to patients with limited assets and family income equal to or less than the federal poverty level. Discounted care is available to patients with limited assets and family income between the federal poverty level and 250% of the federal poverty level. Patients not meeting these eligibility guidelines, but with high medical expenses during a twelve-month period, may qualify for catastrophic care assistance.
Fees Charged Patients Eligible for Financial Assistance
Patients eligible for financial assistance, and having no insurance coverage, will be granted a discount on WMC bills for emergency and medically necessary care that will not exceed fees paid for patient care by MMC’s most favored commercial insurance payer.
