Financial Assistance Program

As your community healthcare provider, Archbold Medical Center provides the Financial Assistance Program to assist eligible uninsured and/or underinsured patients and their families with medical bills beyond their ability to pay.  If you meet the requirements for the Financial Assistance Program, all or a portion of your hospital charges may be covered.  You will not be required to pay for hospital charges covered under the Financial Assistance Program.  Archbold participates in the Georgia Indigent Care Trust Fund.  As our patient, if you qualify, you receive certain benefits under the Trust Fund.

You have a right to:

  • The availability of free and reduced-charge services
  • The ability to gain admittance without pre-admission deposits
  • Not be transferred solely or in significant part for economic reasons
  • The availability of services provided
  • The terms of eligibility for free and reduced services
  • The application process for free and reduced charges
  • The person or office to which complaints or questions about the hospital’s participation in or operation of the program may be directed
