Charity Care / Community Benefit
Consistent with our Mission and Values, Community Memorial Healthcenter (CMH)
is committed to providing the highest quality health care services to all members of the community. The hospital provides these services consistently and compassionately, without regard to an individual's ability to pay.
CMH offers assistance for patients and families with limited financial resources. The hospital's financial counselors help patients work out financial terms that meet their needs. Financial Counselors can be reached at 434-447-3151, Ext. 3200. The financial counselor will review payment and funding options that may be available to you.
We understand that circumstances occasionally arise that prevent the payment of a bill. In such situations, we must rely on our patients to keep us informed. We will do whatever we can to help patients who demonstrate their willingness to pay for their hospital care.
Patients who demonstrate an inability to pay for health care services may be eligible for our Charity Care or Indigent Care programs. Our financial specialist can also help identify local, state or federal programs that can assist you in meeting your financial obligations.
To determine eligibility, the patient/guarantor must complete the Financial Assistance Application form and provide supporting documentation. Documentation required includes most recent pay stubs, verification from all employers, most recent W-2 forms, tax return, proof of any other type of income received and bank statements.
For more information please contact our Financial Specialist at (434) 447-3151, Ext. 3203. We will treat your questions and any information you provide us with confidentiality and courtesy.
