Rice Memorial Hospital announces new patient payment procedures


Planning to be a patient at Rice Memorial Hospital in the near future? Starting Dec. 1, patients will be required to pay part of their bill before leaving the hospital.

A new software tool also is being introduced, giving patients an accurate estimate ahead of time for how much their care will cost and how much they'll owe out of pocket.
