Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s (SMH) Patient Financial Advocates work with all active patients to help them navigate the complexities of healthcare and medical billing. Many SMH patients do not understand their own healthcare insurance, so patient financial advocates assist them through the process. The advocates cover everything from navigating co-pays to applying for financial assistance through various options available to the patient.
These advocates are also trained to help with enrollment in the healthcare marketplace. The work our patient financial advocates do is an extremely valuable service of our patients.
To reach one of our Patient Financial Advocates please call 307.675.4620.
Open Enrollment for 2019 Health Insurance Marketplace is November 1 – December 14. Contact us for help.
