Financial Assistance  

The Albany Med Health System understands that receiving medical care sometimes includes unexpected expenses. Assistance may be available through the Albany Med Health System Financial Assistance Program.

The program applies to all areas of the Albany Med Health System: Albany Medical Center Hospital, Albany Medical College, Columbia Memorial Health, Glens Falls Hospital and Saratoga Hospital. This includes professional services from employed providers of these facilities. 

Eligibility is based on the federal income poverty guidelines and family size using a sliding scale. 

Please review our Financial Assistance Program policy below:

It's important to know that no two patients are the same. Therefore, we believe it is not helpful to provide a list of services and standard charges. Instead, we encourage you to contact us at (518) 289-2024 so we can discuss your particular situation. We can also answer any additional questions that you might have.

Financial Questions

We will work with you to provide an estimate based on your situation and the procedure your doctor has recommended. Please bear in mind that we typically cannot do this for emergency medical services because they are not scheduled in advance.

Prices are based on many factors, including the cost for staff, equipment, facilities, medications, and other supplies; the amount of time involved; and information provided by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which oversees Medicare and Medicaid. 

Insurance coverage differs from plan to plan, so it’s best to ask your insurance provider. We can also assist you once you arrive at Malta Med Emergent Care to clarify the cost.

That depends on your insurance plan. Please contact them directly for this information. We can also assist you with this once you arrive at Malta Med Emergent Care.
