Patient Financial Services
Magnolia Regional Health Center is committed to caring for patients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year –regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.
Everyday MRHC treats people who lack health insurance or can’t afford to pay for quality health care unless they receive financial assistance.
MRHC provides necessary health care at no charge or at a reduced charge to those who meet certain financial need requirements. Financial assistance is generally for people who do not have other financial resources available, such as insurance, government programs, or regular income.
To be considered for financial assistance, patients must complete an application and answer questions related to his or her income and assets, as well as provide documentation of the income and assets. MRHC verifies the patient’s income and assets based on the Federal Poverty Guidelines in order to provide a fair financial assistance distribution system. Before the financial assistance application can be processed, all income and assets and credit status are verified to determine the monthly payment schedule that will best fit the individual.
Call 662-293-1151 or 662-293-1078 for more information on MRHC’s Financial Assistance Program.
Contact the Business Office for questions or to arrange payment on your account. We accept cash, check, MasterCard, Visa and Discover. We are able to take your payment with a credit card over the phone, or you may use the “Pay Your Bill Online” feature.

Beneficiary Information Notice
The Magnolia Clinics are participating in a Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization. Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs): Providing Better, Coordinated Care for You.
Magnolia Regional Health Center and other Mississippi Hospitals have joined the Myriad Health Alliance which is Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO. An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and/or other health care providers working together with Medicare to give you better, more coordinated service and health care. We share important information and resources about your individual needs and preferences. Participation in an ACO is intended to better coordinate your care to improve your health.
You Can Still Choose Any Doctor or Hospital
Your Medicare benefits are not changing. ACOs are not a Medicare Advantage plan, an HMO plan, or an insurance plan of any kind. You still have the right to use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may recommend that you see particular doctors or health care providers, but it’s always your choice about what doctors and providers you use or hospitals you visit.
Select Your Primary Clinician On MyMedicare.gov.
As a Medicare beneficiary, you can log in to MyMedicare.gov and select your primary clinician. Your primary clinician is the health care provider that you believe is responsible for coordinating your overall care. Selecting a primary clinician does not affect your benefits or restrict your ability to get care from any doctor or other clinician you choose. Your selection of a primary clinician will remain the same unless you decide to change your designation. To select your primary clinician, log in to your MyMedicare.gov account or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Search for your primary clinician by typing their name into the provider search tool. Then select the “Add as my primary clinician” option under the provider’s name.
Having Your Health Information Gives Us a More Complete Picture of Your Health
To help MRHC and the Myriad Alliance give you better, coordinated care, Medicare will share information with us about your care. The information will include things like dates and times you visited a doctor or hospital, your medical conditions, and a list of past and current prescriptions.
This information from your health care providers will give the MRHC Providers and other health care providers in ACOs a more complete and up-to-date picture of your health. Over time, you may notice that you don’t have to fill out as many medical forms that ask for the same information, you don’t need to repeat medical tests because your results are shared among your health team, and other benefits because your providers are communicating with one another.
If you choose to let Medicare share your health care information with the MRHC and the Myriad Alliance (this is the name of the MRHC ACO) it may also be shared with other ACOs in which your other doctors or health care providers participate. If you don’t want your health care information shared, you can ask Medicare not share it.
Your Privacy is Very Important to Us
Just like Medicare, ACOs must put important safeguards in place to make sure all your health care information is safe. ACOs respect your choice on the use of your health care information for care coordination and quality improvement.
- Yes, share my information: If you want Medicare to share information about the health care you received with the Myriad Alliance or with other ACOs in which your other doctors or health care providers participate, there’s nothing more you need to do.
- No, please don’t share my information: If you do not want Medicare to share your health care information, you need to do the following:
Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Tell the representative that your doctor is part of an ACO and you do not want Medicare to share your health care information. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
If you change your mind in the future, call 1-800-MEDICARE and tell the representative what you have decided. We can’t communicate with Medicare on your behalf.
Even if you decline to share your health care information, Medicare will still use your information for some purposes, like assessing the providers’ financial and quality of care performance in ACOs. Also, Medicare may share some of your health care information with ACOs when measuring the quality of care given by health care providers participating in those ACOs.
If you have questions or concerns, call Jason Coley, Executive Director of Physician Services and Clinic Operations at (662) 293-7678 or we can discuss them next time you’re in our clinic office. You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE and tell the representative you’re calling to learn more about ACOs, or visit Medicare.gov/acos.html.
