It is the mission of Memorial Health System (MHS) to improve the health of the people and communities we serve.
To better serve the community and further our mission, Passavant Area Hospital accepts a wide variety of payment methods and offers resources to assist the patient and responsible party in resolving any outstanding balance.
Passavant Area Hospital recognizes there are occasions when a patient is not financially able to pay for their hospital care, and is not covered by any payer. Since the provision of care is not dependent on the patient’s ability to pay, Passavant Area Hospital has established guidelines in which a patient may apply and qualify for financial assistance. Passavant Area Hospital strives to balance needed patient financial assistance with the broader fiscal responsibilities to accomplish our mission.
For more information on Passavant’s Financial Assistance Program, please contact a Patient Financial Representative, 217-479-2877 or 217-479-2876. Our Patient Financial Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except holidays).
Lorna Legreid, Passavant’s Medicare/insurance consultant, is available to help patients understand and cope with paperwork and billing that follows a hospital stay. Lorna is available to assist discharged patients with the filing of Medicare/insurance forms and helps clients understand the comprehensive process of filing claims. There is no charge for this service.
Lorna is available Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For an appointment, please call 217-479-5573.
