Chicot Memorial Medical Center offers a variety of financial services including Financial Assistance Program, Prompt Pay Discounts and assistance in accessing the Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace. These are just a few options available to provide affordable Healthcare. For assistance or questions feel free to call 870-265-9200.
Financial Assistance Program- The Financial Assistance Program identifies patients who are under or uninsured and who are unable to pay for some or all of their healthcare services due to genuine financial need. Patients who are not eligible for Medicaid or any other funded program and who are unable to pay for services will be considered. Patients or the patient’s guarantor are required to complete an application and provide documentation to qualify for financial assistance. If you have a high deductible you can also apply.
Prompt Pay Discounts- You may qualify for a discount if you pay your bill in full within 45 days from the date of service.
Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace- Chicot Memorial Medical Center has a Certified Application Counselor on site to assist residents of the Chicot County area in applying for health insurance coverage through the Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace. This health insurance under the new health care law allows many Arkansans to qualify for low or no-cost health insurance. Certain documentation must be provided in order to determine if one qualifies through this option.
