A note about the programs

Financial assistance is available to individuals who live in the United States. These programs cover emergency or other medically necessary care. They cover ONLY Yale New Haven Health member hospital bills. A link to the list of providers who provide such care and whether they do or do not follow the FAP can be found in the FAP. Patients eligible for financial assistance will not be charged more than the amount generally billed to patients with insurance for emergency or other medically necessary care. Yale New Haven Health will respond to each application in writing. If your application is denied, you can re-apply at any time. Additional free bed funds become available every year. Translations of our Financial Assistance Policy, Summary of Financial Assistance Policy and Application are available for certain groups with limited English proficiency.
