SSM Health Monroe strives to create healthy communities through God's healing spirit. This includes serving the community's most vulnerable patients, including those with limited financial or insurance resources. SSM Health Monroe gives special consideration to persons in need of financial assistance through the community care program and discounts for the uninsured. For more information, please see our FAQ sheet in English or Spanish or call patient accounts at 608-324-1259.
Discounts will be available on a sliding scale based on financial resources up to 400 percent of federal poverty guidelines. To qualify for community care discounts, patients must reside in SSM Health Monroe's primary or secondary service area (PDF) and complete an application, which includes providing proof of financial resources and applying for any federal or state assistance for which they may be eligible. Detailed information and application forms are available upon request from patient accounts at 608-324-2802.
SSM Health Monroe will discount charges 25 percent for patients without health insurance. This discount is comparable to some of our contractual arrangements with third party payers and will be applied automatically on the billing statements of those patients presenting with no health insurance. When combined with the prompt payment discount of 15 percent, patients can save up to 40 percent on their charges. (Prompt payment discount information will also be included on the billing statement.)
While Community Care patients must choose a primary care provider, it may be from either Adult Medicine or Family Medicine and may be at any Monroe Clinic location. To find a provider, visit our primary care page.
