At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Springfield, there are no barriers to care. Doctors determine the course of care and all care is provided regardless of the families’ ability to pay. If the child is covered by private insurance or a state funded plan, the hospital will bill and accept reimbursement for services provided at our hospital. However, insurance coverage is not a criterion for care. Any child under age 18 with a medical condition that is within the hospital’s scope of services is eligible.
For insurance related questions, please call 413-735-1227.
