Financial Assistance Programs

York Hospital is committed to providing quality health care regardless of one's ability to pay. But that isn't where our commitment ends. York Hospital's Caring For All program includes these affordable health care options:


We offer free care to patients whose income is as much as twice the federal poverty income level. For example, an uninsured family of 4 whose total annual income is $44,100 or lower qualifies for FREE CARE at York Hospital. Based on this program alone, York Hospital provides millions of dollars worth of free care to patients who utilize our services every year. FMI | 207-351-2398 or 207-361-6988 or email


We serve as patient advocate to assist eligible patients in receiving prescription medications through drug manufacturers. Our staff will apply for free prescription drugs obtained directly from drug companies on your behalf. Not all medications have programs. If we cannot obtain meds for you, we will refer you to other sources. Also, the Apothecary at York Hospital and the Berwick Pharmacy at York Hospital in Berwick offer prescription medications at cost to those who qualify for free care and have no other prescription insurance.

HELP (Help at Every Level) is aimed at making healthcare affordable for those who either have no insurance or who are underinsured (i.e., have catastrophic coverage or other high-deductible plans). The HELP Program offers a reduction on your hospital bills based on household income and the amount you owe. Click here to see the grid and find out more information.


Our Patient Financial Assistance Office will work with any patient to help set the amount they can afford to pay each month. FMI | 207-351-2398 or 207-361-6988 or email
