Mayo Clinic has a long history of providing care to people regardless of their ability to pay. Our primary value is "the needs of the patient come first."

Mayo Clinic provides services to meet the needs of people who are unable to pay for care. These services include:

  • Using fair and consistent billing and collection practices, including charitable care and financial assistance policies and a standard application process
  • Providing extended payment plan options, and medically necessary services at reduced rates, or at no cost for patients eligible for financial assistance
  • Providing emergency care, regardless of ability to pay

Mayo determines your eligibility for financial assistance based on financial information and the medical services needed. Required financial information includes: your annual household income, assets, family size and availability of alternative sources of payment. Please refer to Mayo Clinic's Financial Assistance Policy (PDF) for further information.
