For patients who do not have insurance coverage, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children offers alternate funding and payment plan options. Our hospital staff will work with you to identify the assistance options available to you based on government and hospital rules and regulations.
The Medical Eligibility Program is a hospital service provided to you at no cost. You may qualify for government programs which pay for all or part of your hospital and medical expenses. If you are under 21 or over 65 years old, have children in the household, are pregnant, potentially disabled, or have been a victim of crime you may qualify. Our hospital patient advocates will assist you with the application process.
Programs for which you may qualify include:
Uninsured patients may be eligible for our Compact with Uninsured discounts. Our hospital patient advocates will assist you with understanding the rules of eligibility for the Uninsured Discount Program.
Additionally, a non-profit credit counseling service may be available in your area. For more information, contact a hospital patient advocate at (215) 427-8442.
