GENERAL MEDICAL CARE

Hospital Care for Uninsured and Underinsured

Hospitals are generally required to provide financial assistance to low-income people that use their facilities for emergency and medically-necessary services. 

 

If you have recently been to the Emergency Room or been hospitalized and cannot pay your portion of your bill, you can apply to have some or all of your hospital bill waived.

 

The amount waived will be based on your income and you must complete a financial assistance application within a certain timeline AND provide all of the requested supporting documents. You must complete a new application for each hospital visit. 

 

Piedmont Healthcare Patient Financial Assistance     *You can apply in-person at Piedmont Newton (Financial Counselor Office)

Emory Healthcare Patient Financial Assistance

Northside Hospital Patient Financial Assistance

Grady Patient Financial Assistance

You will still be responsible for bills from the various doctors that provided care to you at the hospital and the for any ambulance that provided transportation to the hospital.
