TCH starts payment amnesty program


— Tahlequah City Hospital is offering an amnesty for patients who have fallen behind on their bills.

“We are offering a special 35 percent discount until April 15 for anyone wanting to take care of their outstanding account balances,” said Jennifer Palmer, TCH’s assistant vice president of Reimbursement.

The amnesty program is available to all accounts that have not already undergone legal action. Following the April 15 deadline, patients will have the opportunity to take advantage of the normal 20 percent prompt pay discount or make payment arrangements with The Midland Group.

“We understand that sometimes it is difficult to pay your bills on time,” Palmer said. “We want to help our patients with the financial aspects of their care.”

To take advantage of the program: (918) 453-2262, or visit a Patient Financial Services representative at Tahlequah City Hospital.
