Burdett Care Center is committed to minimizing the financial barriers to health care that exist for certain members of our community, in particular, those not adequately covered by health insurance or governmental payment programs. As such, financial aid to assist low income, uninsured or underinsured individuals with their hospital claims is available to all who qualify.

Burdett Care Center is proud of its mission to provide quality care at an affordable price to all who need it.
If you do not have health insurance or are concerned that you may not be able to pay for your care in full, we may be able to help. Burdett Care Center provides financial assistance to patients based on their income and other resources. In addition, we may be able to help you apply for low-cost health insurance or work with you to arrange a manageable payment plan.
Our Financial Aid program is in the form of a discount off of our commercial payment rates. Any open balance, including co-pay and deductible balances are eligible to be considered for a discount.
It is important that you let us know if you expect to have difficulty paying your bill. In the absence of a documented financial hardship, federal and state laws require hospitals to seek full payment of what they bill patients. This means that unless we are notified of your financial situation, we may turn unpaid bills over to a collection agency, which could affect your credit status.
Applications are available from any member of our Registration Department, including the person registering you. Click here to view and print the financial assistance program application.
