Filing an insurance claim

As a courtesy, Wood County Hospital will file a claim with your insurance company based upon the information you provide. Many insurance plans require pre-authorization for your hospital stay. It is the responsibility of you, the patient, and your physician to receive this authorization prior to planned admissions.

Financial counseling

Any financial concerns, questions or special needs may be discussed with a financial counselor between 8:00 A.M. and 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday.

  • A Financial Counselor may be reached at (419) 373-7611.
  • Billing questions can be addressed by a Patient Accounts Representative at (419) 354-8972.

Charity Care

Charity Care is provided to patients who are in need of healthcare services but cannot pay for that care and may have a significant financial burden as a result of the amount required to pay.
Partial and/or full charity care is based on the individual’s ability to pay and upon meeting income eligibility criteria as established by the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.
