Financial Assistance

Athens Regional Medical Center offers financial assistance programs.

Through our Medicaid Eligibility Program, Athens Regional offers financial assistance applying for Medicaid through different Medicaid Eligibility programs. These programs include applying for regular Medicaid, Right from the Start Medicaid, Emergency Assistance Medicaid, Presumptive Medicaid and Peach Care for Kids.

We also have an outside vendor, Firstsource Solutions USA, that screens our patients in need of financial assistance for medical services. Call 706-475-4667 for assistance.

The Financial Assistance Program allows us to provide financial assistance to eligible patients unable to pay for their medical care. Eligible patients can receive free or reduced cost services based on income level as compared to the federal poverty guidelines.
