The New York Presbyterian Hospital is a medical institution that was founded through the merger of the New York Hospital and the Presbyterian Hospital in 1998. Currently, the hospital operates four divisions: physician services, community health, a regional hospital network and the New York Presbyterian Hospital itself. The hospital receives over two million visits each year, many of which are charity care cases.
Charity care is a form of financial assistance provided to patients that visit the hospital who are in need of financial aid. The program ensures eligible patients with insurance are not billed more than general amounts, and that patients without insurance are not billed more than the hospital's gross charges. In addition, flexible installment payment plans are available to patients who qualify for charity care. For income requirements and other program information, visit www.nyp.org/about-us/charity-care.
