Financial Assistance

At Nemours, we want to help you any way we can, including assisting you in the financial aspects of your child’s care. We do whatever it takes to make this part of the process easier, so you can focus on more important things — like helping your child
feel better.

Medicaid Enrollment

Medicaid is the largest health insurer in the U.S., providing coverage for a full range of medical services for eligible children and families. While the federal and state governments share the cost of Medicaid, each state determines its own benefit packages and eligibility requirements based on federal guidelines and the state’s needs.

Medicaid covers all medically necessary primary, specialty and emergency
care for children, including:

  • physician visits
  • hospital visits
  • well child visits and treatments
  • immunizations
  • dental care

Your Nemours financial counselor can tell you more, and help you with
Medicaid enrollment.

Financial Assistance Programs at Nemours

If you can’t afford private insurance and you don’t qualify for your state’s health care programs, you might be eligible for Nemours-funded financial assistance to help cover a portion, or in some cases the entire cost, of your child’s care.

We have several programs available, some for specific medical conditions and others that will discount, or lower, the cost of Nemours medical services. Financial assistance from Nemours is based on financial need.
