$62 million in charity care worldwide
Mayo Clinic's charity care program supports patients with significant financial need and those who have medical conditions for which Mayo is uniquely qualified to provide care.
In 2011, Mayo Clinic provided $62 million in charity care — worldwide:
- Providing emergency care to stabilize patients, regardless of ability to pay.
- Helping patients find sources to fund their care, including opportunities to work with outside agencies.
- Providing individualized payment plans and medical services at reduced rates or at no cost — based upon the patient's ability to pay.
- Providing in-kind and monetary support, health-related education, outreach programs, and leadership on community task forces and community boards.
