The University of Chicago Medicine recognizes that patients and their families may need help paying for services received here because your insurance has not covered the entire bill or no insurance is available.

If you need financial help for your medical needs, you can contact our financial assistance representative. UChicago Medicine offers discounts that may cover all or part of your balance. This is based on your being able to show and prove your financial need. You can get financial help even if you don’t have insurance. 

Any patient with a balance related to care received here, or any person responsible for paying a patient bill for care received here (the guarantor) may request an application for financial assistance.

UChicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital offers financial assistance discounts that may cover all or part of the patient balance(s) based on a verified financial need. Our financial assistance options exceed those required by the Illinois Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount Act, and are normally dependent on your family income. Your verified family size and income will determine whether you qualify for a discount, and, if so, the amount of the discount.
