For scheduled patients, the verification of coverage and patient responsibility will take place prior to your arrival. Unscheduled patients will have coverage and patient responsibility verified at the time of check in. As a result of the verification of coverage process, patients will be expected to pay their confirmed patient liability amount prior to check in. Emergency medicine patients will have coverage verified after the point-of-medical screening exam, as required by EMTALA guidelines.
Putnam General Hospital understands not all patients have the ability to pay for their healthcare and offer financial assistance to qualifying patients. If you are in need of financial assistance, please speak with one of our Patient Financial Counselors at 706-923-2055.
