Financial Assistance


Dosher is committed to serving the healthcare needs of our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We seek to provide care and treat all equitably, with dignity and compassion. We strive to balance needed financial assistance for some patients with the broader fiscal responsibility to remain open and providing care in to the future. We have adopted a Financial Assistance and Collections Policy to assure that patients who have no ability to pay for care are not denied care and are assisted in the process of settling their hospital accounts.

We offer financial assistance for anyone who may have a problem paying his/her bill. Our assistance includes investigating alternative sources of funding to pay the account. We accept credit cards and routinely offer monthly payment arrangements up to 12 months. We can work with any who cannot pay their account in 12 months on a case-by-case basis.

Our Financial Assistance and Collections Policy provides for the review of financial information provided by the patient/guarantor to determine if he/she meets our guidelines for charity write-off. We use the Federal Poverty Guidelines to write off up to 100% of charges on a sliding scale based on income. We also will consider the assets and obligations of the patient/guarantor as well as catastrophic circumstances in determining ability to pay. Charity care assistance is available to both uninsured and underinsured patients.

Patients who may have a problem paying their hospital bills are encouraged to call a financial counselor at 910-457-3810 to set up payment arrangements or apply for charity care. The new fax number: 910-457-3842.
