The financial worry of a medical bill is a real concer for many of us and, not surprisingly, often causes a great deal of anxiety. There are many questions a patient may have, including:
- How much will it cost?
- How much will I personally have to pay for services?
- Are there flexible payment options and/or financial assistance?
Concern about a medical bill should never get in the way of receiving essential health services. TMC provides the best quality care to everyone, regardless of one's financial situation. TMC accepts most commercial and government sponsored health insurance plans (e.g. Medicaid and Medicare). To find out if TMC accepts your health insurance please click: Insurance Plans Accepted.
For those that may not have healthcare coverage, our Financial Counseling Center will assist you with determining potential eligibility for commercial medical insurance through the Missouri Health Insurance Exchange or coverage assistance programs such as Medicare, Mo Healthnet (Medicaid), Crime Victims Compensation Fund and/or the TMC Discount*.
Patients admitted to TMC are visited by a counselor during their stay to determine eligibility for various programs. To see a list of the items you will be required to bring to your financial counseling appointment, please click: Required Documentation for Financial Counseling.
