Decatur Morgan Hospital is committed to providing quality health care that improves the health of those we serve. One of the ways we fulfill this mission is to provide financial assistance to those members of the community in need. Our Financial Assistance Program may be able to assist with expenses for your care.
See the information below to learn more:
To find out if you qualify for financial assistance, please download and complete the Application Form / Solicitud and attach documents that prove income, assets or other available resources, as detailed in the Financial Assistance Guideline Letter. If you need help completing the application, financial counselors are available by calling (256) 973-4688, Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. All inquiries are confidential.
We will determine financial assistance eligibility based upon income and asset guidelines and the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. Approved applications apply to Huntsville Hospital Health System accounts only. Applicants will be notified by letter regarding their financial assistance application status.
Examples of documentation used to verify eligibility include pay stubs, tax returns forms and bank statements. Additional forms of verification may be required.
Extraordinary collection actions will be suspended during the consideration of a completed charity care application. Prior to placement with an agency, a note will be entered into the patient’s account related to charity care to suspend collection activity. If the account has been placed at the agency, the agency will be notified by telephone to suspend collection efforts until a determination is made. If a charity care determination allows for a percent reduction but leaves the patient with a self-pay balance, payment terms will be established on the basis of disposable income.
If supporting documentation is not submitted with the financial statement and/or falsification of any portion of the application is identified, your application will be denied. We reserve the right to reverse financial assistance when information is presented indicating the patient/guarantor has the ability to pay for services and financial assistance should not have been approved.
PLEASE NOTE: The financial assistance offered under this program does not apply to physician or other professional fees billed separately from the hospital fees. For questions or assistance with the financial assistance application, please call our office at (256) 973-4688.
