Financial Assistance

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.

Additionally, insured patients may experience 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."

Piedmont’s Financial Assistance Policy

Collection Practices and Policies

Applicants approved for financial assistance will be exempt from all collection efforts related to outstanding accounts that fall within the eight (8) month approval time frame. PHC will not turn over any account approved for financial assistance to a collection agency or report it to a credit bureau. Normal collection efforts will be applied to account balances that fall outside the eight (8) month approval time frame, as outlined by the PHC Billing and Collections policy. Please refer to that policy for further details.

PHC will not impose extraordinary collection efforts such as wage garnishment, liens on primary residence or other legal actions for any patient/guarantor without first making reasonable efforts to determine whether that patient is eligible for financial assistance under this policy.
