On April 11, Atlantic General Hospital will hold Enroll Delmarva Day, a day its patient financial services department has dedicated to assisting the community with health insurance coverage. During this event, uninsured Marylanders can learn more about available health care coverage options and receive guidance in filling out plan applications. Atlantic General will have financial counselors on hand to answer questions and assist with the forms.
“As part of our ongoing assistance to our community, financial counselors are always available to assist our patients in need,” said Mickey Griffin, director of patient financial services at Atlantic General. “The enrollment event serves to increase the visibility of our financial counseling services, and we encourage the community to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Atlantic General Hospital’s financial counseling staff will be joined by representatives from Priority Partners, the Worcester County Health Department, and Worcester County Social Services who can address any specific questions or concerns about their programs.
AGH financial assistance applications will also be available for those who qualify. It is the policy of Atlantic General Hospital/Health System to provide medically necessary services at no charge or at a reduced cost to all eligible individuals who are unable to pay according to the hospital’s guidelines.
If you or one of your dependents has qualified for PAC (Primary Adult Care), free or reduced school lunches, energy assistance, the Food Stamp program, or WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants & Children) and you have an outstanding balance in good standing at Atlantic General Hospital that you cannot afford to pay, you may qualify for the hospital’s Financial Assistance program.
Financial assistance is available to all qualifying patients without discrimination on the grounds of race, color, national origin, age, gender, religion or creed.
Those who may be eligible for State Medical Assistance need to apply to the state before being considered for Atlantic General’s financial assistance program.
Living without health insurance is a risk no one should have to take. Please attend April 11 to learn more. For questions prior to Enroll Delmarva Day, please call 410-629-6026.
