AnMed offers financial assistance, based on the current Federal Poverty Guidelines to uninsured patients and guarantors with an outstanding balance owed for medically necessary services.

<200% FPL= 100% discount
201-300% FPL= 75% discount
301-400% FPL= 65% discount
**These discounts are taken after the self-pay discount of 50% off of gross charges.
Once a patient is approved for Financial Assistance, the discount will apply to all qualifying accounts 180 days prior from application date. The discount will also be applied to future accounts with dates of service 180 days forward from the application date.
