Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) is committed to treat all patients who need our care regardless of their health insurance or financial status.
We offer services to help you arrange for payment of your bill, from insurance billing to payment plans and even financial assistance, which may qualify you for free care or reduced payment.
Financial assistance or free care is available only for medically necessary services.
Patients at Eastern Maine Medical Center may qualify for free care if their family income is 150% or less of the federally established income guidelines or for a sliding scale discount if their family income is between 151% - 250% of the guidelines. To qualify, all third party payment sources must be exhausted.
Patients also are entitled to a 3% prompt pay discount on all self-pay balances paid within 14 days of the first self-pay statement date.
Our patient account representatives, available at 973-5000, are here to help you learn more. They will ask whether you have insurance of any kind to help pay for your care. You may also be asked to show that insurance or a government program will not pay for your care.
If you do not qualify for free care, you are entitled to ask for a fair hearing. Contact us for information about applying for a fair hearing.
