Hospital Resources

  • Assistance

    If you are worried about paying your medical bills, we can help you through one of the financial assistance programs at Cincinnati Children’s. We are committed to providing healthcare to children, regardless of family income.

    What if I do not have health insurance?

    Financial counselors can help. All families who live in our primary service area and do not have health insurance are eligible for discounts and payment plans. Our primary service area includes Hamilton, Warren, Butler, Clermont, Boone, Kenton, Campbell and Dearborn counties. Discounts vary and are based on family income and size. To receive discounts and payment plans, or to apply for other financial aid programs, you will need to fill out an application in English or Spanish and meet certain requirements.

    For more information, contact our financial counselors at 513-636-0201 or email PFC@cchmc.org.

    Is there help if my health insurance does not cover my bills?

    Family financial advocates assist families that have health insurance but who need additional financial resources to cover medical bills for their chronically ill child.  We identify and help families apply for programs including Medicaid, Social Security, waivers, developmental disabilities services, Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH), and other financial assistance and family support resources. Our family financial advocates can also help you resolve billing issues. 

    For more information, contact our Family Financial Advocates at 513-803-6500 or email FFA@cchmc.org.
