Uninsured patient estimates
Capital Region Medical Center offers many forms of financial relief for patients without healthcare insurance (the uninsured) needing emergent or nonelective services.
First, we have financial counselors on hand to evaluate your eligibility for various local and state programs, including County Assistance and Medicaid.
Charity discount policy
CRMC has a charity discount policy that provides free hospital care for patients who have received nonelective care, do not meet the qualifications for Medicaid and whose income is less than 200 percent (in most cases) of the federal poverty level. In order to qualify for this free care, you must complete a financial assistance application and provide some documents to support your income. For questions regarding our charity policy, or to request a copy, call 573.632.5029.
Uninsured discount policy
For patients who do not meet the charity discount policy criteria and will be expected to pay for services out of pocket, CRMC offers a managed care-like discount. All uninsured patients (excluding those receiving cosmetic procedures and certain package procedures) will be given an uninsured discount. All pricing estimates posted below already reflect the hospital's uninsured discount.
Similar to your visits to your physician's office, we expect payment at time of service. If you are ineligible for Medicaid or charity and cannot pay your entire estimated bill, we will work with you to set up monthly payment arrangements. If, after your services are received, any additional payment is due, we will send you information about any amount you may still owe. We accept major credit cards, checks, money orders and cash.
