Adirondack Health is proud of its mission to provide quality care to all who need it. We do not refuse care based on ability to pay.

Adirondack Health provides financial aid to uninsured and underinsured patients based on their income and needs. In addition, we may be able to enroll you in free or low-cost health insurance.

It is important that you let us know if you will have difficulty paying your bill so we can be sure that your unpaid claims do not become part of the collections process. You may set up an interest-free payment plan for outstanding balances by contacting the financial counselor at 518-897-2217 and pay your balance in manageable monthly payments. Payments need to be approved by the financial counselor to avoid further collection efforts, so please contact us if you would like to make payments on your outstanding bills.
