Coming Soon! Online Bill Pay
Mary Washington Healthcare is in the process of adding online bill payment for your convenience. Stay tuned for more information.
If you believe you qualify for financial assistance, we are here to help.
A financial counseling specialist is available to review your account to determine the level of assistance we can offer. We first determine if you are eligible for financial assistance. If you are ineligible, we will review your account to see if you are eligible for a discount. If you cannot pay the entire amount of the bill, we may set up a plan so you can pay your bill over time.
If you own your own home, you may still be eligible for either financial assistance (free care) or a discount on your bill. Mary Washington Healthcare does not count what your home is worth against you when we review what you are able to pay. We also do not count the first $50,000 you have in cash or in bank accounts.
All of your information is kept confidential and only used to determine whether you are eligible for financial assistance from Mary Washington Healthcare. We never share your information with any other organization.
