Financial help at O'Bleness
(2008-09-15)
(WOUB) - Health care costs are going up and up and that's got many people down.

O'Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens knows that and is trying to help.

Lynn Anastas is the vice president of community relations at O'Bleness, which recently expanded financial assistance to help patients manage their healthcare expenses.

O'Bleness now has a patient financial counselor to help people understand the billing process, insurance benefits and out of pocket expenses.

The counselor can also explain programs that may partially or completely cover the cost of care.

O'Bleness says as the number of uninsured and underinsured patients continues to increase, its new patient financial counseling and assistance services should help the hospital continue to provide quality health care to everyone who goes there.
