Patient financial assistance program for physician services
UCLA Health physicians strive to provide quality patient care and meet high standards for the communities we serve. We are committed to helping eligible patients who are not able to pay for all or part of their care. Our mission and vision include providing full financial assistance (100% discount) or partial discounts to eligible patients who are low income, uninsured or under-insured. Further information on UCLA Health Physicians' Financial Assistance Program is provided below.
The Financial Assistance Program applies to emergency or other medically necessary healthcare services provided and billed by UCLA Health physicians.
Determination of eligibility
Eligibility is determined based on review of a fully completed Financial Assistance Application and supporting documents, including proof of income, assets and liabilities. Generally, patients with family income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level will be eligible for a discount of up to 100%. Patients with family income between 201% and 350% of the Federal Poverty Level may be eligible for a partial discount based on income level.
If you receive financial assistance under our policy, you will not be charged more for emergency or other medically necessary care than the amount generally billed to patients having Medicare fee-for-service coverage. In some instances, patients may be presumptively determined eligible for financial assistance.
