If your care at Crawford Memorial Hospital is planned in advance, you should take the opportunity to look over your health care insurance, Medicare, Medicaid or other assistance coverage. Please call your insurance company to make sure that your services will be covered and to get approval for any procedures that require pre-certification.
Understanding what portion of the costs will be your responsibility can help you and your family plan effectively for the cost of your care. Most insurance plans do not cover 100% of your hospital stay or other visits. Co-payments and deductibles may be due at time of service. If you are unable to pay a large balance due, you may make arrangements for installment payments by calling the financial counselors at 618-546-2568.
If you have no insurance, you may be asked to pay a deposit for elective services upon admission. For those uninsured patients that are ineligible for financial assistance, CMH offers an uninsured discount and a prompt payment discount.
