Financial Assistance Policy

Penn Medicine is committed to caring for all patients equitably, with dignity, respect and compassion without regard to age, race, color, national origin, religious creed, sex, physical or mental disability, marital status or sexual preference.

Caring for All

As part of this commitment, Penn Medicine offers financial counseling and assistance programs to uninsured and underinsured patients to assist those who cannot pay for all or part of their care.

Patients will be considered for financial assistance on an individual basis, taking into consideration total household income and other resources. Penn Medicine will also consider other factors in the patient/family financial situation, should there be other critical expenses, not related to the patient's medical care, that make payment of the financial obligation impossible, such as caring for a disabled family member.

Uninsured or underinsured persons may apply for financial assistance at any time during treatment here or when request for payment is made.

Please call 877-433-5299 for information on financial assistance.
