UW Health’s Community Care program helps people who are unable to pay for their medical care.  Patient’s may be able to get financial assistance (help) if they are not insured, underinsured, do not qualify for government assistance (for example Medicare or Medicaid), or it is hard to pay for care at UW Health.

How Does it Work?

The following guidelines help identify patients who may be eligible to receive Community Care:
