Open Door Policy

Bookmark and Share

Memorial Health System has an open door policy - no patients are denied admission because of their inability to pay for services.?? Also, federal and state regulations require that the hospital furnish free care to patients with income at or below poverty level.?? Proof of income may be required.?? Please call our Financial Counselor at 740-374-1673 between 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday for more information.
Workers Compensation
The hospital will bill the patient until a valid claim number is obtained and given to Patient Accounts.?? The claim number enables us to bill Workers Compensation for your care.?? The patient will be billed if the claim is denied by Workers Compensation.?? Non-covered services will remain the responsibility of the patient unless personal health insurance information is provided to Patient Accounts.
If you have questions concerning a Workers Compensation claim, please call 740-374-1759.
Courtesy Discharge
Patients will be extended a courtesy discharge permitting them to leave the hospital without clearing through the Cashier's Office if the following requirements are met:
  • Insurance has been verified and all appropriate forms are signed.
  • Satisfactory financial arrangements have been made.

The hospital accepts personal checks, Visa, Mastercard and Discover as payment.
