Your Financial Support Options
Continuing our historic tradition of providing medical care to those who do not otherwise have the ability to pay, The University of Kansas Health System offers a financial assistance program for both the citizens of Kansas and those of other states as well.
Our program can assist patients, insured or uninsured, whose gross family income is from 0% to 300% of the federal poverty guidelines. The program further assists patients who owe the health system for medical bills that are equal to or exceed 50% of their gross family income.
Our financial counselors can help with cost or pricing estimates.
Some of the program requirements are:
- You must not qualify for other governmental assistance.
- If you have a managed care plan, the health system must be a participating provider.
- If the health system is not a participating provider, your insurance must agree to pay as if it were.
We will help you navigate the complex application process for Medicaid and other government programs. We will also assist you in securing any benefits for which you may qualify.
