At Nemours Children's, we want to help you any way we can, including assisting you in the financial aspects of your child’s care. We want to make this part of the process easier, so you can focus on more important things — like helping your child feel better.
We have financial counselors on-site to help you:
- Design an interest-free payment plan you can afford
- Identify and apply for available state and federal assistance, like the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
- Apply for funds through Nemours Financial Assistance Program
- Determine Medicaid eligibility and assist with Medicaid enrollment
Nemours Financial Assistance Program
If you can’t afford private health insurance, and you don’t qualify for state or federal government health care programs, you might be eligible for Nemours-funded financial assistance. It’s our policy to provide care, either at a discounted rate or at no charge, for those patients who participate in the Nemours Financial Assistance Program (NFAP). NFAP plan not only applies to hospital charges, but also applies to physician services as well.
