Local hospital offers payment plan

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview launched a program to help those without insurance to pay a fair price for their medical care. The hospital will offer a cash payment program to give patients the same benefit pricing discounts that insured patients have.

"What we're trying to do is making healthcare affordable so they don't get into debt, but also know that a lot of people want to pay their bill but they want to pay a reasonable bill," said Good Shepherd CEO Ed Banos.

For information on the payment program, call Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview.
