You may qualify for Financial Assistance based on your family size and income, even if you have health insurance. UW Medicine provides financial assistance for any patient/guarantor whose gross family income is up to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and adjusted for family size after any third-party coverage has been exhausted.

For facility and/or professional services at Airlift Northwest, Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center, UW Physicians, UW Medicine Primary Care, and Valley Medical Center:

• 0% - 300% of the FPL for a 100% financial assistance discount

For facility services only with discharge dates on or after July 1, 2022 at Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center, and Valley Medical Center:

• 301% - 350% of the FPL for a 75% financial assistance discount
• 351% - 400% of the FPL for a 50% financial assistance discount

A family size greater than one person refers to persons related by birth, marriage, or adoption who live together; all such related persons are considered members of one family. In addition, included family member(s) must be claimed as dependents on federal income taxes for the most recent filed return. Information to support inclusion of family members will be requested.

For help, contact the UW Medicine location on your Financial Assistance Application where you are seeking care.

For assistance, contact a UW Medicine representative noted on the Financial Assistance Application or Plain Language Summary.
