UC Davis Health strives to provide quality patient care and meet high standards for the communities we serve. This policy demonstrates UC Davis Health’s commitment to our mission and vision by helping to meet the needs of low income, uninsured and underinsured patients in our community.


Eligible Services

The Financial Assistance Program applies to emergency or other medically necessary health care services provided and billed by UC Davis Health. Services that are separately billed by other/non-UC Davis Health providers are not eligible for consideration under the Financial Assistance Program.


Determination of Eligibility

Eligibility is determined based on review of a completed Financial Screening Form and supporting documents, including proof of income, assets and liabilities. Generally, patients with family income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level will be eligible for a discount of 100%. Patients with family income between 201% and 350% of the Federal Poverty Level may be eligible for a partial discount based on income level.

If you receive financial assistance under our policy, you will not be charged more for emergency or other medically necessary care than the amount generally billed (AGB) to patients having Medicare coverage.
