Financial Assistance

UF Health North provides emergency (as defined by the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act, or EMTALA), urgent and other medically necessary health care services to individuals without discrimination and regardless of their ability to pay. Patients who are unable to pay for their health care services may qualify for financial assistance based upon their income. Patients who have a family adjusted income less than 200% of current federal poverty guidelines may be eligible for a discount up to 100%.

Uninsured patients who are not eligible for financial assistance under this policy may be eligible for a self-pay discount of 45% off gross charges. Any self-pay or financial assistance discount applied will be reversed if insurance, third-party liability, a settlement or other miscellaneous source is identified.
