Financial Assistance Policy
Tift Regional Health System (“TRHS”), a not-for-profit health system, was established to serve the health needs of the patients and communities we serve. TRHS is committed to providing health services to patients regardless of their ability to pay. TRHS recognizes that not all patients have the financial resources to pay their hospital bill.
The Financial Assistance Program offers emergency and other medically necessary services at no cost to qualified patients. Whether patients are uninsured or underinsured, they can apply for financial assistance. Our Financial Counseling staff and a third party service will assist individuals in applying for eligible government health insurance programs and completing the financial assistance application, free of charge. Upon approval patients may receive the following assistance:
2020 Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG)
Indigent/Charity Income Levels
