Financial Assistance

We understand medical bills are often unplanned and can be difficult to understand or pay. ARHS has Patient Financial Advocates who can help. Our Patient Financial Advocates are professionally trained to assist with your financial questions. Please do not hesitate to ask for them while you are a patient in one of our facilities, or if you prefer, you can call them at (828) 262-4413.

Financial Assistance is available to those patients who are in need of help to pay their account. Assistance is based on the guarantor’s financial status. In order to determine this, the guarantor will need to complete a Financial Assistance application that includes, but is not limited to, proof of income and assets. Please contact a Patient Financial Advocate to complete a Financial Assistance Application, (828) 262-4413.


Financial Counseling

The Financial Counseling Department is also available to help patients who may have difficulty repaying their medical debts. Contact our Financial Counseling Department at (828) 262-4110.
