Financial Assistance Programs

Financial Assistance Programs

Community Memorial Hospital has had a long-standing commitment to share responsibility for providing care to all members of our community, regardless of their ability to pay. No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay; and there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available based on family size and income. The following HCAP and charity care information outlines our commitment to providing free and significantly discounted care to patients due to financial hardship.


Family incomes at or above 250% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible to receive, without charge to the individual, basic, medically necessary services at the hospital or rural health clinics.

The Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) experienced a failed computer system conversion during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we are sorry to share that this has caused some delays in our billing processes dating back to May 2021 and earlier. Our new leadership team has vast experience in system conversions like this and is focused on positioning your hospital to be financially viable for the future. Please accept this as our apology for failing to meet your expectations for financial excellence and our commitment to exceeding them as we move forward.
