Charitable Care

BMHS has a charitable care program and caring professionals available to help guide you through the process of applying for assistance.

If you are concerned about your ability to pay for your medical care, please speak with our financial advisors in the Patient Accounts Department.  They can help you review your health insurance coverage and work out a payment plan for your charges.

If you don’t have health insurance, they can help guide you through the application process to get benefits from Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability, as well as other federal, state and community benefit programs.
