Anderson Regional Medical Center is committed to providing high quality, compassionate health care to you and your family. In order to maintain our high standards of health care delivery in the most cost- effective manner, an upfront payment is required. Operating our hospital in a cost effective manner allows us to provide leading edge technology to best meet your needs and maintain the high level of quality care that you have come to expect from Anderson Regional Medical Center. Rest assured that your health care is our first and foremost concern. By paying your portion at the time of service, you will help us continue to invest in our staff, facilities, and equipment, and provide our patients with excellent care.
All patients should familiarize themselves with the terms of their insurance coverage. This will help you understand the hospital's billing procedures and charges. If there is a question about your insurance coverage, a member of the Business Services Department will contact you or a member of your family while you are here regarding information needed in order to process your claims.
As a part of Anderson Regional Medical Center’s mission to serve the health care needs of our community, financial assistance is available to patients who are without financial means to pay for medical services. Those who are financially or medically indigent will receive care on a non-discriminatory, objective basis in keeping with our continuing need for good stewardship of limited medical and financial resources.
If you do not have insurance or cannot pay your bill, we ask that you contact the Business Services Department so that we may assist in determining whether you qualify for any of the financial assistance programs we have available. You may contact the Business Services Department by calling 601-553-6181 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We have several payment options available to assist you in paying your bill. Your bill reflects all of the services you receive during your stay. Charges fall into two categories: a basic daily rate, which includes your room, meals, nursing care, housekeeping, telephone and television; and charges for special services that include items your physician orders for you, such as X-rays or laboratory tests. If you have certain tests or treatments in the hospital, you may receive bills from physicians you did not see in person. These bills are for professional services rendered by these doctors in diagnosing and interpreting test results while you were a patient. Radiologists, cardiologists, anesthesiologists and other specialists perform these services and are required to submit separate bills. If you have questions about these bills, please call the number printed on the statement you receive from them.
