Hemophilia of Georgia (HoG) is an in-network provider for most commercial and Marketplace plans as well as all three Georgia CMO’s and Medicare. Our subsidiary, Beacon Pharmacy, also serves as a provider for people who are enrolled in traditional Medicaid fee for service. Clients who wish to use the HoG Pharmacy but do not see HoG on their plan or need help in obtaining insurance, should contact their social worker to discuss options that may be available and next steps.
