Financial Assistance

At Northeast Georgia Physicians Group, we believe that no one should delay seeking medical care because they lack insurance or have high medical costs. That’s why we assist patients with applying for public health coverage programs and offer discounts, payment plans or free care to eligible uninsured or underinsured patients for medically necessary care.

Financial Assistance Eligibility Requirements

  • Patient has received or is scheduled for medically necessary care and resides in the Northeast Georgia Health System service area (defined below):
    • Medically necessary care means care which is appropriate and consistent with the diagnosis and if not received could adversely affect or fail to improve the patient’s condition.  It is care that is not cosmetic, experimental or deemed to be non-reimbursable by traditional insurance carriers and governmental payers.  It is care that is deemed medically necessary by an examining physician’s determination.
  • Patient’s gross family income is between 0 and 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, adjusted for family size
