Can I Get Financial Aid from UVA Health?

We look at many things when deciding who gets aid and how much. We use a sliding scale based on:

  • If you have insurance
  • Assets - the total value of what you own, including bank and retirement accounts, home, car, etc.
  • Income - how much money you make a year
  • Number of people in your household

We currently offer flexible, interest-free payment plans. Contact us about setting one up.

Helping Pay for Care You Need

It’s important to know that our help continues after you leave our hospital or clinics. And when it's time to pay your bill, we'll work with you to make sure your payment options are fair and flexible:

  • We've updated our billing and financial aid policy. We based these changes on billing and financial aid practices at similar hospitals. We've also included input from the local community.
  • We're creating a special Ombudsman's office that will review individual cases. They'll help you understand your payment options and help reach a fair payment solution if you have financial issues. 
  • We're expanding our financial aid options for cases of emergency care without insurance.

Financial Aid for Emergency Care

We know accidents and emergencies happen. On top of that stress, a sudden bill can strain your budget.

That’s why we have financial aid for catastrophic care. If you get emergency care, you may qualify for a reduced bill if:

  • You don't have insurance or other ways of paying
  • Your care costs more than $10,000
  • Your care is eligible for this type of aid

We calculate the amount you owe based on your family's finances. With this aid, you won't owe more than 25% of your family income and assets.
