INSURANCE & ASSISTANCE
It is extremely important to us here at Cavalier County Memorial Hospital & Clinics that the worry of financial obligations are not restricting our patients' ability to put their care first.
The following resources are designed to assist your need for financial assistance with your care:
Medicaid is a primary source of insurance for low-income and disadvantaged individuals. Medicaid applications are required for other forms of assistance. To complete an application, you can apply online at www.healthcare.gov or contact the local Social Services office. Cavalier County’s number is 701-256-2175. Eligibility is based on disadvantage or purely off of income.
children's health insurance program
The state of North Dakota has a great assistance program for working families with children that do not qualify for Medicaid, but still cannot afford insurance. To complete an application, you can apply online at www.nd.gov/dhs/services/medicalserv/chip/ or contact the local Social Services office. Cavalier County’s number is 701-256-2175. Eligibility is based on income and children’s age.
The ACA has developed an online marketplace for individuals to apply for health insurance. The 2016 enrollment period has ended. However, special enrollments are still available due to life changes. Otherwise, 2017 enrollment starts November 1, 2016 and runs until January 31, 2017. You can apply online at www.healthcare.gov.
CCMH has a Charity Care policy that is based upon the Federal Poverty Income guidelines. Applicants can qualify for discounted or free care dependent upon income and liabilities. A Charity Care application has been included in this packet. Our policy and additional applications can be found on our website. The following information is required for a Charity Care determination: a Medicaid approval/denial, the most recent tax return, and 3 months of recent pay stubs or bank statements. These can be mailed or dropped off directly to the hospital or clinic locations.
Any questions or concerns with any of these policies can be answered through our business office at 701-256-6100 or from our CFO at 701-256-6177.
