Financial Assistance

A Consumer Resource for Making Informed Choices

Piedmont Healthcare understands that not all patients have the ability to pay their healthcare bills. We offer financial assistance to qualifying patients. It is our goal to work with our patients to find ways to make Piedmont’s medical care more affordable. If you are having trouble paying for all or some of your healthcare services, please speak with our Patient Financial Care team at 1-855-788-1212.


What is covered under Piedmont’s Financial Assistance Policy (FAP)?

Assistance may be available for emergency and medically necessary care for uninsured patients. Piedmont Healthcare patients with family household resources up to 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines may be eligible for fully discounted services.


How to Apply for Assistance
 

Other Financial Options and Information Available

If a patient’s circumstances do not qualify for fully discounted services, other options may be available for resolvingoutstanding balances, as outlined below.

  • Uninsured Discounts: Piedmont offers an automatic discount for all patients who do not have health insurance coverage. Please contact us if you have any questions about our discount program.

Additionally, insured patients may experience a financial hardship when paying their balance after all third-party payments. To apply for Hardship Assistance, see the section above, “How to Apply for Financial Assistance".
