Free and Below-cost Care

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is required by law to provide a certain level of free and below-cost care to those who can’t afford hospital services. We determine who is eligible by using Federal Poverty Guidelines, which are established annually by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Forms for free or below-cost care are available at all outpatient registration areas. For more information about program eligibility, please call the Business Office at 215-590-2555, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
