Mayo Clinic requires uninsured patients to deposit the estimated cost of care in advance of receiving services. If additional testing, doctor consultations or hospital admissions are necessary, additional deposits will be required.
Mayo Clinic provides numerous services to meet the needs of people who are unable to pay for their care. This assistance includes helping people find sources to fund their care, using fair and consistent collection practices that are in the best interest of all parties involved, and providing hardship financing terms, charitable care and opportunities to work with outside agencies.
Of course, emergency care is provided to stabilize you, regardless of your ability to pay. For those who don't qualify for charitable care, Mayo Clinic provides individualized payment plans based on your ability to pay.
