Financial Assistance Program
We understand that paying for emergency or other medically necessary medical
care can be difficult, particularly for patients who lack health insurance.
As part of our commitment to our patients, we provide financial assistance
to patients who are indigent and satisfy certain requirements. Our financial
counselors work hard to help our patients address their financial responsibilities
in a way that is fair and sensitive to their circumstances and they are
here to help you find financial solutions that can help cover your cost of care.
The hospital’s Financial Assistance Policy applies to uninsured or
underinsured patients who come to our facilities for emergency or other
medically necessary treatment. This policy provides financial relief to
patients who qualify based on a comparison of their financial resources
and/or income to Federal Poverty Level guidelines. If you have questions
regarding our program or application, please call 770-991-8600. To qualify
for assistance, patients will be asked to complete a Financial Assistance
Application. Please click below for more information:

Following are standard charge lists for certain procedures. However, the
actual amount paid by any patient varies widely and primarily depends
on the type of insurance, if any, that the patient has. For uninsured
and underinsured patients who may qualify, there are financial assistance
and discount programs available through our hospital, and staff who can
assist with eligibility for government programs such as Medicaid.
