Southeastern Med offers financial assistance to patients with limited financial resources or inadequate health insurance coverage. Eligibility is determined by family size and income. Our Financial Counselors also assist patients with exploring any other potential coverage options that may be available to pay their hospital charges (Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance etc.) As a non-profit hospital we provide high quality care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Patients who are not receiving or do not qualify for Medicaid benefits and whose family income is below 200 percent of the federal poverty level may qualify to receive free or reduced care through our financial assistance programs. Patients who are eligible for financial assistance will not be charged more than amounts generally billed by the hospital for care provided to insured patients. Southeastern Med is currently contracted with physicians from Emergency Consultant Inc. – SymMetric Revenue Solutions, Inc. to deliver emergency and medically necessary care in the Emergency Department. SymMetric Revenue Solutions is covered by SEORMC’s Financial Assistance policies and all applicable discounts are applied by SymMetric Revenue Solutions, Inc. upon proof of eligibility. Patients may receive bills from other providers for services rendered while at SEORMC. These providers are not covered under SEORMC’s Financial Assistance policies. Please see the Provider Addendum for a listing of our most common providers.
