To apply for Financial Assistance please call us at (800) 995-5727 or visit the Financial Assistance Program page to apply online.…


First, make sure that you attach all requested documentation to your application. If we do not receive all of your documentation, we cannot process your request.


The Northwell Financial Assistance Program provides reduced fees for uninsured or underinsured patients.


If you need more medical care, please contact the Financial Assistance Unit at (800) 995-5727 so that your prior application can be re-evaluated. 


No. All information in your application is kept confidential.


We look to see if you live within the Northwell service area, and sometimes we will ask you questions about your financial assets.


Only services that your doctor thinks are medically necessary will be considered for the Financial Assistance Program. 


To apply for financial aid, you must provide proof of your current household income and household size. In some instances, you may be asked to provide your recent bank statements of general savings.


You can appeal the decision by writing to us and submitting any additional information and/or documents that you would like for us to review.
