The Business Office at Women & Infants and Financial Counseling
The mission of Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island is to maintain and improve the health status and well-being of women and infants in Rhode Island, southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Connecticut, and to provide essential services regardless of the ability to pay.
If you do not have medical coverage or you are left with a significant balance after insurance and cannot afford to pay your medical bills, a Women & Infants' Financial Counselor will work with you to minimize your financial burden. By using one of the following steps, we will determine which solution will best meet your needs:
- Helping you to obtain private insurance coverage
- Creating and customizing and affordable payment plan
- Assisting in the application process for public assistance programs
Financial counselors are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm; Saturdays and Sunday, 7:00 am to 3:30 pm; closed on holidays.
Women & Infants' financial counselors are committed to working with patients to minimize their financial burden. We assist in obtaining private insurance coverage, creating and customizing an affordable payment plan or assisting in the application process for public assistance programs. Our staff is knowledgeable, courteous and professional. As always, we are trained to keep all information in the strictest of confidence.
The Business Office can assist patients by providing them with accurate information about hospital charges associated with a stay at our hospital.
