Patient 101 - How to Find Reliable Health Information
Mobility limitations. Medications. Scheduling follow-up care. There are a lot of details to remember when you leave the hospital. But all most patients want to do is relax and recover in the comfort of their own homes.
That’s why Reedsburg Area Medical Center (RAMC) and the Reedsburg Area Ambulance Service are pleased to offer a Mobile Integrated Health program to help bridge the gap between hospital discharge and recovering at home, allowing patients to focus on healing.
Through the Mobile Integrated Health program, patients and their families receive the following support from paramedics:
What if I don’t have health insurance?
Payment is expected in full at the time of service or upon receipt of your bill, but you may be asked to bring payment with you at time of service based on an estimate of your bill. Medically necessary (non-elective) services will not be denied based on your ability to pay. If you do not have health insurance and worry that you may not be able to pay in full, we might be able to help. We offer financial aid programs to patients based on eligibility criteria, but not everyone qualifies. We may also be able to help you identify other available resources or work with you to arrange an acceptable payment plan.
It is important that you let us know if you will have difficulty paying your bill since federal law requires us to apply our billing and collections criteria consistently to all patients. To avoid legal action with unpaid bills, be sure to contact one of our patient billing representatives if you are experiencing financial difficulty. Unpaid bills may be referred to an outside collection service as a last resort, which could affect your credit status.

A hospitalist is a medical provider responsible for patients from the time of their admittance to the hospital to the time of their release. They coordinate a patient’s care, working with nurses, physical therapists, social workers, and other staff to ensure the best possible care and the best possible communication.
The hospitalist also is responsible for clearly communicating with the patient and their family. When it’s time to leave the hospital, the hospitalist will coordinate discharge instructions and follow up actions, like physical therapy, home visits, or wound care.
