Need help paying your hospital bill?
You may be eligible for financial assistance. Most hospitals offer discounts and
sometimes free care to those who cannot afford to pay. Your eligibility usually
depends on your household income and the number of people who live in your household.
This is compared to the federal poverty level and is referred to as the "percent
of federal poverty level" (% FPL).
To determine your % FPL, use the quick and easy calculator to the right.
