Payment & Billing
Multiple Payment Options for Your Convenience
Newman Memorial Hospital (NMH) understands the financial responsibilities a health care visit may place on patients who are insured or uninsured. We are ready and available to help you navigate the options. Get in touch for more information related to Newman Memorial Hospital billing and hospital payment plans.
At the time of preregistration, registration or discharge, the organization's Patient Financial Counselor will discuss the portion due from the patient. Since total charges may not be known at that time, the Patient Financial Counselor will discuss the estimated amount due. In the event an estimate cannot be provided, a deposit may be requested. The deposit will be applied to the account and a bill for total charges will be mailed to the patient.
We must ask that you settle hospital charges at, or before, discharge, either by insurance benefits, cash, personal check, or debit card arrangements. We also accept Master Card, Visa and Discover credit cards. If you have made adequate financial arrangements upon admission, you will receive a courtesy discharge and will not have to stop by Patient Business Services before leaving the hospital.
If you have a question regarding a medical bill you received from Newman Memorial Hospital, you can contact a member of the Patient Business Services (PBS) Department, during normal business hours of 8:00 AM. until 5:00 PM., Monday through Friday by calling +1 (580) 938-2551. Please have your account number available. You can also call the PBS Department to request an itemized bill for your account or to request a summary of your open accounts.
The NMH payment program will include only those services provided at or by Newman Memorial Hospital. This payment program will not include services provided by outside healthcare providers who may assist in providing your healthcare. These providers bill for their services separately. Financial arrangements must be discussed with these individual providers.
Uninsured patients are eligible for a twenty percent (20%) prompt pay discount if the balance is paid in full within 30 days of the first statement. The first statement will be sent following the date of service or discharge date from the hospital.
Eligibility Requirements and Assistance Offered
Eligibility for financial assistance is based on multiple factors, including the nature of the condition and care required, insurance coverage or other sources of payment, income (Federal Poverty Level guidelines are used to determine the amount of financial assistance offered), family size, assets, and any special consideration the patient or physician would like to have considered.
Financial assistance is available to patients who are uninsured and under-insured. Partial or full financial assistance may be granted based on a patient’s ability to pay the billed charges.
Patients must fully comply with the application process, including submitting the required documents (tax returns, bank statements, and others as requested), as well as completing the application process for all available sources of assistance, including Medicaid and/or Medicare.
Please note that there are certain service exclusions that are not typically eligible for financial assistance, including, but not limited to, transplants, cosmetic services, and other services.
