Ozarks Medical Center is dedicated to providing quality, accessible healthcare
to everyone. Our policy is to provide services without regard to race,
color, religion, sex, national origin, age and handicap. OMC will provide
uncompensated services for those patients who have emergency conditions
and/or can demonstrate that they do not have adequate financial resources
to pay for the care.
Federal and state laws require all hospitals to seek payment for care provided.
This means unpaid bills can ultimately be turned over to a collection
agency, which can affect credit status. Therefore, it is important to
contact Patient Accounts if you think you may experience a problem with
paying your bill. We treat all questions and personal information with
confidentiality and courtesy.
To ensure that quality medical care is available to all of our patients,
OMC has a charity care program to assist the uninsured or underinsured.
You may receive assistance up to 100 percent based on your income and assets.
OMC Financial Counselors are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m. to answer questions concerning billing, payment options or charity
care. Financial counselors are located in the main hospital, the Shaw
Medical Building and the Patient Accounts Department. They may be contacted
by calling 417-257-6709 or toll free at 1-888-257-8389.
If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for discounted medical services.
You must fill out an application to get these discounts.
