Effective August 11, 2021 at 7:00 AM, we have updated both hospitals' Visitation Policy: Non-COVID inpatients are now allowed one overnight visitor and one nonrotating support person during the day. Read the full policy for details here.
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.
RMC helps patients without health insurance to apply and to obtain Medicaid coverage, when applicable.
RMC offers financial assistance programs, which may discount a patient’s hospital bill up to 100 percent. The program discounts vary based upon the patient’s family size and income level.
RMC provides a 65 percent discount of hospital bills when patients have no health insurance AND the patient is not covered by Medicare or Medicaid.
RMC allows payment plans upon request.
Patients have a right to:
- The availability of free and reduced-charge services
- The ability to gain admittance without pre-admission deposits
- Not be transferred solely or in significant part for economic reasons
- The availability of services provided
- The terms of eligibility for free and reduced services
- The application process for free and reduced charges
- The name of person or office to which complaints or questions about the hospital’s participation in or operation of the program may be directed
Government programs that patients may qualify for include:
- Temporary Assistance for needy Families
- Social Security Disability
- Supplemental Security Income
RMC will help patients apply for and obtain Medicaid health insurance coverage when patients:
- Have no insurance (self pay) or limited insurance coverage
- Have hospital bills of $1,000 or more
- Have limited monthly income
