Patient Financial Assistance Programs
At North Shore-LIJ, our mission is to improve the health and quality of life for the communities we serve by providing world-class service and patient-centered care.
If you do not have health insurance, or if you need help with paying a hospital bill, there are several ways we can help you:
- Financial Assistance — If you are uninsured, or if your insurance claim is denied, or if you are not fully covered for treatment, you may be eligible for Financial Assistance through the hospital.
- Sliding Fee Scale — North Shore-LIJ has a Sliding Fee Scale Program where you can get routine medical care at a low cost in our clinics. Eligibility for the Sliding Fee Scale Program is based on your household income and where you live.
- Public Insurance — If you are uninsured, you may be eligible for one of New York State's public health insurance programs, such as:
- Child Health Plus
- Family Health Plus
- The Medicaid Perinatal Care Providers Program
