Hospital Billing Policies
FULTON COUNTY HEALTH CENTER
PATIENT FINANCIAL POLICY

It is the Financial Policy of Fulton County Health Center to maintain a viable healthcare facility, so as to meet the healthcare needs of the community. Therefore, it is the highest financial priority to collect all amounts for services rendered to every patient.

FCHC will provide claims to third party insurances as a courtesy for our patients. After all claims have been settled with third party insurance, all balances will be presented to the patient/guarantor for final resolution.

Financial assistance is available from both State Agencies, as well as Fulton County Health Center. Upon request, the hospital provides the patient/guarantor assistance in completing the applications for these programs.

All balances left unpaid are the responsibility of the patient/guarantor. Payment plans are available based on the following payment criteria:

Up to $100 - Balance paid within 30 days
$101 to $500 - Balance paid within 6 months
$501 to $1,000 - Balance paid within 10 months
$1,001 to $2,000 - Balance paid within 16 months
Above $2,000 - Balance paid within 24 months

As a final solution, FCHC utilizes collection agencies to assist in collecting all monies owed by the patient/guarantor, after all assistance described above has been exhausted. Interest may be charged to the patients balance after an account is in the legal collection process. Interest charges are determined by the collection agency, based on the cost to collect an account.
