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.

Dosher Memorial Hospital and its clinics do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, sexual preference, gender identity, gender expression, religion, disability or the inability to pay. No one will be denied access to health services due to their inability to pay. There is a Discounted Sliding Fee Scale available.

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. Dosher can also assist in the process of settling individuals hospital accounts.

We also 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.

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 and family size.

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.
