Financial Information & Services
It is our mission at GRMC, to make a positive difference in every time we touch. That includes providing financial assistance and services for patients.
About Your Medical Bill
Once you complete your registration process at GRMC, you will have provided any health insurance information you have. Your medical insurance may cover all or part of your charges. We understand your hospital bill may be confusing and lengthy, but our professionals in patient accounts will help you and answer any questions regarding your bill and payment options.
Bill Payment Options
For your convenience, we have several options that will grant you access to view, pay and manage your bill.
- Pay Your Bill – We offer a quick pay option where you do not have to enroll, or you can enroll and have access to your statements, set up recurring payment plans, and choose to go paperless.
- Patient Portal – Through GRMC’s patient portal, you can register and access your health information, which includes your bill.

These discounted prices are not offered to families with Medicaid of other maternity insurance coverage. Any special amenities or accommodations may be subject to additional fees.
