About Medicare, Insurance and Charity Care
Baptist Memorial Health Care serves a wide variety of patients every day, including many with commercial insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and TennCare. In addition, for qualifying patients, Baptist provides millions of dollars in charity care every year.
We accept patients covered by Medicare and strive to provide the highest levels of service to anyone needing medical assistance. Please contact the facility you wish to go to for details about forms you may need to complete and other details.
Baptist Health Services Group provides an updated list of insurance plans that include Baptist. Please check with your human resources department or benefits administrator to see if Baptist is included in your plan.
Charity, Uninsured, and Indigent Care
Baptist is committed to treating all patients equally, with dignity, respect and compassion. We provide services in anticipation of payment by patients and/or those financially responsible for patients in exchange for services rendered. We assist patients in qualifying for federal, state and local programs. In addition, we work with our patients to help determine if they are eligible for financial assistance under our charity, uninsured and indigent policy. All we ask is that they provide us with certain financial information and other documentation, including proof of income. For patients who qualify for financial assistance under our charity, uninsured and indigent policy, we offer a reasonable variety of payment options, including discounts, payment terms and prompt-pay arrangements.
