Coverage through the Georgia Assignment System does not include network discounts or PPO repricing. As a result, you may be faced with thousands of dollars in unreimbursed out of pocket medical bills. We encourage those opting for coverage through the Georgia Assignment System to consider a PPO network such as the one available through Careington.
