Banner Lassen and IHMS Offering New Help for Uninsured Patients

Sunday, March 10th, 2019

Banner Health has announced that it has teamed with Integrated Health Management Services, to help connect uninsured patients with health care coverage opportunities. IHMS will help Banner Health patients obtain the health care benefits they may need for themselves and their family.

“Our mission at Banner Health is making healthcare easier, so life can be better,” said Lonny Aldinger, Western Region Patient Financial Services Director at Banner Health.

“We want all our patients to feel that they are not only getting the best medical treatment they need and deserve but have the peace of mind that they are also receiving the best medical coverage. By teaming with IHMS, we’re committed to helping our uninsured patient population find solutions and resources to their health care needs.”

An uninsured patient often may not have a primary care doctor. If they become sick or injured, they may end up going to an emergency room at a hospital as their primary source of care. This can be costly for the patient, leaving them strapped with a medical bill that they may not be able to afford.

Currently in the United States, there are a variety of Medicaid or third-party health care insurance coverage services available for uninsured individuals and families. Patients often qualify for some type of health insurance, but not know they may also qualify for up to 18 additional benefits.

IHMS will help these uninsured patients who seek care at select Banner Health facilities in the six states it serves by connecting with appropriate health care coverage opportunities. In addition, IHMS Enrollment Specialists will advise patients on a variety of other benefits that may be available to them and their families including assistance with housing, utilities and other social services.

Why We Need Reader Support

 

Our independent, local coverage takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. It is also not particularly lucrative. Our primary revenue source, banner advertising on SusanvilleStuff, is simply not enough by itself, and we increasingly need to rely on reader support to pay the bills.

 

Every dollar our readers contribute goes towards making SusanvilleStuff a stronger voice in the community with better, more comprehensive content. We are committed to never putting up a paywall for our readers, and content on SusanvilleStuff will always be free. These contributions are completely voluntary, and very appreciated.
