Patient Financial Assistance and Eligibility

Harris Health System's mission is to improve our community's health by delivering high-quality healthcare to Harris County residents. While medical care is not free at our facilities, there is financial assistance for those who qualify.

Based on your household income, you may qualify for partial financial assistance, on a sliding scale.
NOTE: Beginning March 1, 2016, Harris Health System is adopting a narrower income range for persons seeking financial assistance. To qualify for financial assistance when this policy takes effect, household income may not exceed 150% of the Federal Poverty Level.

All Harris Health patients are asked to make a minimum payment at the time of their hospital or clinic visit, except for pediatric and prenatal care visits. Service fees do not apply to patients in the Healthcare for the Homeless Program or other insurance plans. Insurance plan copays will be collected according to plan requirements.
