Financial Counseling

We understand that paying medical bills can sometimes create problems for patients and their families. Our financial counseling program is meant to address some of these issues. Financial Counselors assist low-income patients in Medicaid enrollment, as well as utilization of the hospital financial assistance program and clinic sliding scale program. For patients who need help in paying for prescription drugs, there is the Prescription Assistance Program which may lower the costs of medicine for patients who meet the established criteria.
