Cardon partnership helps hospital patients find options to pay for their care

GILLETTE, WY—Campbell County Health (CCMH) has contracted with Cardon Outreach to help people who are uninsured or underinsured find sources to help pay for their medical bills.

Cardon's eligibility worker, Erin Romero, will be stationed in the Emergency Department (ED), but will help both inpatients and outpatients find and apply for qualifying programs, such as Medicaid, CHIP, SSI and others. Erin will visit with eligible patients in the ED upon discharge or she will contact patients by phone. There is also a virtual screening form that can be given to patients when Erin is not available such as evenings or weekends.

"Patients may not know that they are eligible for programs and services that can help them pay their bills," says Dalton Huber, CFO. "CCMH's goal is to find patients who may need help and help them apply for these services."

Since 1996, Cardon Outreach has helped people across the United States find sources that will pay for their medical bills. Cardon works with more than 500 facilities in 35 states, and CCMH has contracted with them this year to begin offering these services to self-pay patients who are cared for in our health system.
