Mile Bluff Assists Uninsured, Underinsured Community Members

Covering the cost of health care can be a challenge. Whether it’s a family going through a tough time, or a young adult just getting started in a career, paying medical bills can be difficult—especially with little or no health insurance coverage. Times like this call for a little outside help, and Mile Bluff Medical Center in Mauston has a team of specialists who are ready to answer these calls for help.

During the 2021 fiscal year, the organization’s charity care program provided assistance to 131 individuals, forgiving over $327,000 in medical debt! Not only do Mile Bluff’s team members connect patients with financial support, but they also walk patients through the sometimes-difficult process of getting health insurance coverage.  One thankful parent expressed gratitude to the team, saying: "We really appreciate all the help getting health insurance for our son, who is currently in college and soon will fall off our insurance. You went above and beyond."
This is just one of the many examples of Mile Bluff’s commitment to the community.
