Hospital Financial Assistance Policy

Baptist is committed to treating all patients equally, with dignity, respect and compassion. We provide medical services in anticipation of payments by patients and/or those financially responsible for patients in exchange for medical treatments rendered. As a service to our patients, we work with them to determine if they qualify for federal, state and/or local healthcare programs.

Baptist is dedicated to providing compassionate, high-quality care for patients while keeping with the three-fold ministry of Christ - healing, preaching and teaching. In accordance with our mission, BMHCC has two separate policies for allocating assistance to uninsured and underinsured patients. The Hospital Financial Assistance Policy outlines our program for technical and/or hospital-based charges. The Financial Assistance Policy for Professional Services summarizes the process for physician procedures and services
