UVA Medical Center Financial Assistance
UVA patients who lack financial resources or who have exhausted their health insurance benefits may be eligible for assistance from UVA. Read our Financial Assistance Policy (PDF).
To apply for assistance:
If you're not eligible for financial assistance you may be eligible for our 20 percent discount program for uninsured patients. This program applies to most services provided through our facility. If you have health insurance or workers’ compensation, if you're negotiating a personal injury settlement with a third party that pertains to the reason you were seen or if you qualify for any other financial assistance program, you are not eligible for an uninsured discount.
