Financial Assistance Information
If you have medical bills because you did not have insurance, you may qualify for financial assistance. A paper application along with supporting documentation is required.
Important: Many health care bills are for co-payments, co-insurance, or deductibles that are required as part of your health insurance. Those bills are not eligible for financial assistance.
Please refer to the documents below to find out if you qualify for financial assistance.
