Financial Assistance

We understand that medical bills are often large and unplanned. They may create financial stress at a time when your primary concern is your health. Providing health care to those who cannot afford to pay is part of our mission at Yuma Regional Medical Center. State law requires us to provide free and discounted care to eligible patients, and you may qualify for this free or discounted care based on your family size and income, even if you have health insurance.

The Yuma Regional Medical Center Financial Assistance Policy covers emergency care and other medically necessary hospital-based services for patients who are eligible based on their income and family size. No patient eligible for financial assistance will be charged more than amounts generally billed to patients who have insurance.

Financial Assistance Policy
