CareCredit & Pre-Payment Plans

Do you need a procedure, but don’t have the funds right now? Athens Endoscopy, LLC is offering CareCredit medical credit card for qualifying persons. If you are concerned you may not have enough credit to qualify, keep in mind CareCredit is more lenient than most lenders. So go ahead and apply so you can have your procedure now and pay later with 6 months no interest for qualifying persons!

If you don’t qualify or prefer not to apply for credit, Athens Endoscopy, LLC is also offering a pre-payment plan for patients so you can have your procedure paid-off before your procedure date. Talk to our Billing Consultant about setting up a pre-payment plan that best suits you and we can even reschedule your procedure to accommodate your personalized pre-payment plan. Think of it as a healthy investment! Then all you have to worry about after your procedure is what position you would like to relax in. For CareCredit or Pre-Payment Plans, please call our Billing Consultant at 706-548-0058 ext. 207.

Cash Patient Service Fee Schedule

We know not all patients have the luxury of health insurance. We also understand it can be a struggle to pay for health services out-of-pocket. For this reason we have put a Cash Patient Fee Schedule together with discounted prices for full pre-payments.
