Financial Assistance

We know that the financial aspects of health care treatment can be challenging and stressful. We will work with all eligible patients to help them receive medically necessary care at UC San Diego Health.

Depending on your household income and family size, you may qualify for financial assistance. The discount percentage is determined by a sliding scale. Those with a family income at or below 200 percent of federal poverty guidelines (FPG) generally qualify for a 100 percent discount. Those with a family income of 200 percent to 400 percent of federal poverty guidelines generally qualify for a partial discount.

Financial assistance is available to those with or without healthcare insurance.
