Financial Counseling & Admissions
Assistance from Ashley County Medical Center
Ashley County Medical Center is dedicated to providing patients with quality
services in every area of our hospital, from the front desk to the surgery
room. Our administrative staff is just as concerned about you, your health,
and your wellness as the rest of your healthcare professionals. We make
sure that you have the information you need to experience a smooth transition
into or out of our hospital. Please see our Financial Assistance Program
Application and Policy for additional information.
During the regular work week (Monday through Friday), we register patients
coming in for outpatient services. In some cases, we handle inpatient
admissions as well. Our financial counseling assistants help outpatients
with the payment process for their services received, whether through
insurance or private pay. Additionally, we provide patients with information
about payment options available to them if they need financial assistance.
The staff at our front desk help patients with registration, account payments,
and itemized statements.
Monday – Friday: 7:30am – 5:00pm
Our ER Admissions team is here 24/7 to assist ER patients with registration.
The staff answer all incoming phone calls and transfer the callers through
to the correct extension if needed. In case of an emergency, our staff
page for a surgery. We can also schedule a case after hours.
When the doctor’s offices close for the day or are unavailable for
some reason, our ER clerk serves as the answering service for them. We
provide patients with different payment options for their ER visit charges,
whether by insurance or through private pay. We also provide information
on different options for patients who need financial assistance.
For more information on our financial counseling or ER admissions team,
don’t hesitate to call Ashley County Medical Center. We are dedicated
to providing you with the information you need to navigate your hospital
visit with ease.
