KOSCIUSKO, Mississippi (PRWeb)—Officials at The Midland Group announce a new partnership with Montfort Jones Memorial Hospital in Attala County, Mississippi. Beginning October 1, 2013, an innovative new patient payment option will be offered to their uninsured patients and patients with balances after insurance has paid. The new payment program is offered by The Midland Group (Midland), a revenue cycle management company with national headquarters in Kansas.
This low-interest plan gives patients with self-pay balances the option of paying their hospital bill over time and allows future bills to be added to the balance without the added paperwork. Unlike other types of patient payment plans or typical loan programs, The Midland Payment Plan has no application or qualification requirements. This plan has no effect on the patient’s credit history and there is no prepayment penalty. Midland will manage all aspects of the patient payment plan and accept all payments on behalf of the hospital.
Roger McCollister, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Midland Group, says his company is committed to helping hospitals like Montfort Jones Memorial make healthcare affordable. According to McCollister, “MontfortJonesMemorialHospital is the kind of hospital we want to work with. They genuinely care about their patients and they recognize that quality healthcare encompasses all phases of the patient experience—including post-care payment options.”
The Midland Group also partners with MontfortJonesMemorialHospital as their public benefits eligibility provider, helping the hospital’s uninsured patients gain access to healthcare services through Medicaid application assistance. Patients needing more information about Midland’s services at MontfortJonesMemorialHospital may contact Midland’s CustomerCareCenter at (800) 595-7868.
