Financial Assistance

Yale New Haven Health understands that it can be difficult for some patients to afford paying their hospital bills. That is why we have a variety of financial assistance programs designed to help. Patients are required to complete a financial assistance application and provide requested documents to verify financial need.

Our agency coordinators are also available to help patients apply for Medicaid benefits.

Financial Assistance for Physicians Providing Care Notice

All clinicians employed by Bridgeport Hospital (BH), Greenwich Hospital (GH), Lawrence and Memorial Hospital (LMH), Westerly Hospital (WH), Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH), and North East Medical Group (NEMG) are covered under the YNHHS Financial Assistance Policy (FAP).

Attached are two lists:  (1) includes clinicians that ARE covered under the YNHHS FAP and (2) includes clinicians that are NOT covered under the YNHHS FAP; patients should contact the clinician’s office to determine if they offer financial assistance and if so, how to become eligible, and for what services their financial assistance policy covers.

This listing is effective as of 1/12/2023, and is updated quarterly. If you do not see a clinician listed here and want to verify whether that person is currently covered under the YNHHS FAP, please call Patient Financial and Admitting Services at 855-547-4584.
