Financial Assistance Programs

Yale-New Haven Hospital will provide services for free or at a discounted rate to uninsured or underinsured patients who cannot afford to pay for medical care. Financial counseling is available to help determine your eligibility for these and other local, state or federal assistance programs.

Free Care

Patients whose income does not exceed 250 percent of the federal poverty level will be considered eligible for free care.

Sliding Scale Discount

Patients whose income does not exceed 400 percent of the federal poverty level and do not have insurance will be considered eligible for our Sliding Scale discount. Sliding Scale income exceptions may apply for patients with hospital bills that exceed 10 percent of their annual income.

Prescription Assistance Program

After discharge, some patients are eligible for prescription discounts -- regardless of health insurance or pharmacy benefits. Learn more.

Financial Counseling

Many additional programs are available to help patients and families in need of financial assistance. We can often help you find out if you qualify for federal or state funds to cover your hospital costs. Our agency coordinators are also available to help patients apply for Medicare benefits. Call 203.688.2030 to speak with or schedule a free, private and confidential appointment with one of our patient account representatives.
