Access to Care
Methodist Health System is committed to helping the underserved members of our community to access the care and services they need. Below are two ways that we expand our reach.
Methodist Community Health Clinic
Temporarily within Kountze Memorial Church, the MCHC serves the underserved and uninsured in the area.
Financial Assistance Policy
If you are unable to afford care, Nebraska Methodist Health System has developed financial assistance guidelines which take into account:
- a patient's current outstanding expenses
- debts/liabilities owed by the patient
- a patient's ability to access third-party payer resource
- a patient's own financial resources
For assistance and more information, please contact our Customer Service department at (402) 354-4230, or (888) 485-4494.
Health Fairs and Screening
We provide screening for cancer of the throat, lung, skin and breast as part of free events open to the public. In 2009 we screened more than 500 citizens of the region at no charge and we diagnosed over 50 active cancers.
Contact us to receive information on screenings.
