Financial Assistance ProgramThe physicians and staff at Salem Memorial District Hospital are committed to providing patients, families and the community with exceptional medical care in a warm and caring environment. Our mission is "To provide quality, patient centered healthcare, with compassion and professional excellence, Every Patient, Every Encounter, Every Time" and we understand that not everyone has insurance coverage or the means to pay for their health care services.
We are committed to providing financial assistance to those that have had medically necessary services and are either uninsured, underinsured, ineligible for any government healthcare insurance programs, or may be under some sort of financial hardship. Eligible Financial Assistance Program patients will have their Salem Memorial District Hospital and/or SMDH Family Medicine bills completely covered or reduced.
Once your application is approved, the Financial Assistance Program we will cover services 90 days from the first billing statement you received and will be effective for one year, after which a new application is required. Any patient payments made during this time will be refunded.
The Financial Assistance Program covers services billed by Salem Memorial District Hospital such as inpatient and hospital medicine services or outpatient services such as x-rays, lab services, and emergency services. It also covers any medical services billed by SMDH Family Medicine clinic.
