Payment Options

Those with Medical or Dental Insurance
Primary Healthcare Centers is approved as a provider with:
  • Most major health insurance plans
  • Georgia Medicaid Managed Care Organizations
  • TennCare (some plans; for medical care only)
  • Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans
Patients are expected to pay their insurance copayments at the time of service and/or to meet their annual deductibles.

Medicare patients do not have to meet an annual deductible for physician’s services at Primary Healthcare Centers because we are a Federally Qualified Health Center. Other PHC services provided to a Medicare patient under Part B (lab, X-ray, etc.) will have the standard deductible as required by Medicare.

Those who wish to apply for Sliding Fee Discount
Primary Healthcare Centers offers a sliding fee discount for those who qualify:
  • Based on the Federal Poverty Guidelines (income level of the household and number of people in the household)
  • Proof of household income must be provided (contact Primary Healthcare Centers for eligibility details)
  • Eligibility and amount of discounted payment will be determined by information provided in the application
Contact the center for specific eligibility details. 

Patients are expected to pay their sliding fee scale amount at the time of service.

Individuals who have no health insurance but do not qualify for the sliding fee scale can receive services by paying full charges.
Good Faith Estimate

For patients that are uninsured or choose not to file insurance, PHC offers eligibility for the sliding scale program. Under the sliding scale program, PHC offers discounts off our regular charges based on a  person’s income and the number of people in the household. When you visit PHC, our staff will help you determine the correct payment group. Please see the chart on the next page to learn more about the sliding scale payment groups and the information you must bring to your appointment to determine the correct payment group.

For questions concerning the good faith estimate, please contact 706-620-4494 ext 8511 or 8513
