Financial Assistance

Who We Are

BayCare is a not-for-profit health care system committed to serving the health care needs of the residents of the communities we serve, regardless of ability to pay. 

What We Do

The BayCare Financial Assistance Department can help determine if you qualify for assistance with medical expenses and ongoing medical care. Whether you visit the emergency room, receive outpatient services or are admitted to the hospital, our staff is available to assist you through the application process. We realize that paying for medical bills may be difficult. If you are unable to pay your medical bills and meet the eligibility criteria, you may qualify for assistance.
