While Mercy Hospital Springfield awaits a final decision from CMS related to the survey that ended Nov. 2, we continue to participate in both Medicare and Medicaid and we welcome all patients who are enrolled in these programs.
There has been some confusion as to whether care provided at Mercy Hospital Springfield for patients enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid is currently covered. The answer is yes.
The confusion seems to have arisen from a notice that The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) posted on their website on Oct. 20, 2017.

Our caregivers and co-workers have worked diligently to address concerns identified by CMS, and we remain committed to providing our patients high quality, compassionate care.
