Little or No Insurance?
If you do not have insurance coverage or you have insufficient insurance coverage, Jennie Stuart Medical Center is happy to provide a screening service, at no additional cost to you, for Kentuckyís Medicaid/DSH (disproportionate share program).
The DSH program is supported by the Department for Medicaid Services with hospitals being responsible for determining eligibility. People who live in Kentucky and who do not qualify for Medicaid may qualify for DSH if their income and resources are within DSH program guidelines.
For the hospital to determine eligibility, income verification requires that you provide pay stubs, tax returns or other documentation of your income. The hospital may also require additional information to evaluate resources, such as a credit check. Failure to provide required information within 10 calendar days will result in a determination of ineligibility and the applicant will be fully responsible for the charge incurred and subject to hospital collection proceedings.
If you desire this service, contact a MedAssist Representative by phone at (270) 887-6812. If you prefer to talk to someone in person, ask your registration clerk for directions to the MedAssist office.
Our office hours are Monday-Friday, 8am to 4:30pm. To see if you are eligible for other charitable benefits that may be available, please call one of our financial counselors at (270) 887-0332 or (270) 887-0234.
