PMH Business Office ready to help
Pocahontas Memorial Hospital takes pride in its mission to provide care to all who need it. Just like the nurses and medical staff at Pocahontas Memorial Hospital, the Business Office is also dedicated to helping those who visit our hospital.
It is crucial to let us know if you think you might have trouble paying your bill – we have programs to help. The hospital offers financial assistance to patients who have no insurance, as well as to patients who have copays and or deductibles. Accounts that are paid within 30 days of the statement date qualify for a discount. If you have an overdue bill, it is not too late to seek help. We offer an exoneration program, as well as payment plans when necessary.
We are required to seek full payment for all services provided; which could mean that unpaid bills are turned over to collection agencies or the magistrate. Please do not delay in contacting us if you need assistance or have questions concerning your account.
The Business Office staff may be reached at 304-799-7400 ext. 1300 or our Financial Counselor at 304-799-7400 ext. 1026.
The Business Office is open Monday through Friday.
