HOUSTON (March 18, 2020) — Harris Health System is extending its financial assistance program plans 90 days for current patients who have been approved for financial assistance.

Patients should renew their assistance plans two weeks before their new expiration dates.
Due to temporary limited access to our eligibility centers as an added precaution to prevent transmission of Coronavirus, new patients who qualify for assistance and are in need of care will be screened for a 90 day temporary financial assistance plan at the time of their visit. Individuals seeking care will not be turned away due to financial assistance issues.
