Financial Assistance Program Summary





Simplified (also referred to as Mandarin version)

ChristianaCare serves our neighbors as respectful, expert, caring partners in their health. We are committed to making care affordable and we offer discounts, payment options and financial assistance to people who cannot afford to pay for medical care, including Emergency Department services.

Our Program

  • The program applies to all medically necessary hospital inpatient, outpatient and Emergency Department services that are billed by ChristianaCare, as well as all medically necessary services provided by any ChristianaCare-employed doctor. This would also include dental services that would require hospitalization. Services not eligible for support and excluded from this policy are cosmetic procedures, bariatric services and liability cases.
  • If your gross household income is less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL) and you meet the corresponding household limits, then medically necessary services may be provided at no charge.
  • If you are uninsured and your gross household income is greater than 200 percent of the FPL, you are eligible for a standard discount of 15%.
  • We calculate the bill using the same amounts billed to people with insurance.
