Financial Assistance

Our commitment to uninsured and lower income patients

RMC is committed to serving the health care needs of our community. We realize that health care can be very expensive. To help you, RMC offers discounts for patients with no insurance and/or low incomes.

Patients without health insurance receive a discount on their hospital bill from RMC. We offer financial assistance and discounts ranging from 15% to 100% of the total bill for patients with incomes below 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Actual discount amounts depend on:

  • Family income
