Financial Assistance- One of the services we provide the citizens of Terry County is financial assistance to our indigent population. This assistance encompasses not only Hospital bills but also certain outpatient procedures as well as BRMC physician office visits. Our financial counselor is trained to be familiar and understand many of the different assistance programs available to those who qualify. To assist us in this process, we have an employee from Texas Department of Health and Human Services with an office located in our facility.
The financial counselor is available to all self-pay patients who are admitted to BRMC. The counselor will visit with self-pay patients to determine if they are eligible for financial medical assistance. We can also assist with the application processes as appropriate. Persons who live in Terry County and meet certain income and assets guidelines may be eligible for the Terry County Indigent Program. This program requires the completion of an application and must provide various information and documents including proof of income and residency. Each case is different and may require additional information.
The financial counselor is also available to assist all BRMC patient’s in applying through the Pharmaceutical Company’s Patient Assistance Programs for prescriptions.
Anyone who is unable to pay for all or a portion of their treatment is welcome to apply for assistance.
