Thank you for visiting the Patient Financial Services department page. We are staffed with 18 full and part-time employees. We are here to manage the patient’s account from registration until the account is paid.
- Charges not covered by Medicare or other insurance will be the responsibility of the patient/guarantor.
- Individuals presenting for service or admission without valid insurance coverage will need to make arrangements regarding payment. Our Patient Financial Counselor may be reached at (270) 487-9231 ext 1141.

Monroe County Medical Center accepts assignment for all covered Medicare services and will bill the Medicare program on the patient’s behalf. If the patient has supplemental insurance, the hospital will bill the carrier as well. All charges for non-covered services, as well as any deductible or coinsurance amounts, will be the patient/guarantor’s responsibility. The Medicare Clerks may be reached at 270/487-9231 ext 1324 or ext 1380.
Monroe County Medical Center accepts all insurance for covered plan services and, as a courtesy, will bill the insurance carrier for the patient. However, the patient/guarantor will ultimately be responsible for payment including all applicable deductible and coinsurance amounts.
The hospital expects insurance payment within (30) days of final billing. If the payment is not received, the patient is encouraged to call their insurance carrier and assist in obtaining payment. The Insurance Clerk may be reached at (270) 487-9231 ext 1320.
