Philosophy

In keeping with our mission statement “…conserve patient and community resources through a sustainable, financially viable, coordinated system of health care delivery,” Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics wants to help make healthcare affordable. No one in need of emergency medical attention will be turned away, regardless of race, national origin, or financial status.

Hospital
Prompt Pay Discount

A "prompt pay" discount will be granted for self-pay accounts where the Hospital is not required to bill any insurance.  The discount amount is 25% of the total balance due.  The account must be paid in full within 30 days from the date of the first bill in order to be eligible for this discount.  The request form for the discount is included with your initial bill that is sent to every self-pay patient.

Tax Adjustment

If you own a home in Mason County, you are eligible for a once-a-year tax adjustment with a yearly maximum of $250.00.  In order to qualify, you need to complete the Tax Adjustment Request Form and provide a copy of your Mason County Real Property Tax Statement.  Only one adjustment will be applied per year within 90 days from the date the service was billed, or 90 days from the date other insurance paid their full amount.  Past due accounts or accounts in collection are excluded.  Applications can be picked up at the Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics Admitting desk or at the Patient Accounts Office.

Medicare

Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics will bill Medicare for your service if you provide the appropriate Medicare ID number.  If it is required by Medicare, we will ask you to sign an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) for non-covered services.  For non covered services that are statutory denials (these items are listed by Medicare as not covered), you will be billed when Medicare denies and no ABN will be issued.

Medicaid
Healthy Options Programs

At the time of service, a Medicaid recipient must present their current medical coupon and card.  The Admitting Staff will verify eligibility prior to treatment.

Charity Care/Uncompensated Care

Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics has a Charity Care/Uncompensated Care Policy.  This policy contains the guidelines for people to follow if they need any assistance with payment of their hospital bills.  This policy applies to those who who do not have insurance AND those who have insurance, and is based on income levels. Please ask at the Admitting area or the Business Office for a copy of the guidelines and an application. Completed applications should be sent or delivered to the Business Office. 

Our Uncompensated Care Program is based on a sliding fee schedule extending up to 400% of the federal poverty level.  In order to qualify you need to do three things:

  1. Apply at DSHS and be approved or denied medical coverage
  2. Complete the Uncompensated Care application
  3. Provide proof of income so that we can verify household income for the previous 12-month period

After all the criteria have been met, a determination will be made based on the income information.  You may qualify for a discount of up to 100% of your bill.
