Rome Health is proud of our not-for-profit mission and recognizes that there are times when patients will have difficulty paying for the services provided. Rome Health's financial assistance program provides discounts to qualifying individuals based on your income. In addition, we can help you apply for free or low-cost insurance if you qualify.
Financial assistance is available to individuals who have received or are going to receive emergency or medically necessary care at Rome Health. No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay. There is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available based on family size and income.
Please see our policy for specific guidelines and exclusions.

The amount of discount varies based on your income and the size of your family. Rome Health discounts patient accounts up to 100% depending on family income in comparison to the federal poverty level. Please see our policy for specific guidelines and exclusions.
