Being a patient in the hospital can cause a financial burden on you or your family for which you are not prepared. We want to help ease this burden so that financial problems will not interfere with your recovery.
Ottawa County Health Center's financial assistance program helps patients who have medical bills that are beyond their ability to pay.
Any patient, whether underinsured (patients who are insured but cannot pay their portion of the bill) or uninsured (patients having no insurance or federal or state health care program) can apply to receive financial assistance for medical bills. Financial assistance is based solely on the patient's ability to pay and not on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or veteran status.
Representatives are ready to help you and your family with any questions or concerns you may have. For more information please call and ask for Patient Financial Services, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

- OCHC maintains its commitment to serve all patients requiring care regardless of age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, veteran status, or ability to pay.
