Hill-Burton Act: Free or Low Cost Care

What Services Are Covered Under The Hill-Burton Program?

Next » « Previous


On your request, a Hill-Burton facility must give you a written individual notice which will tell you what types of Hill-Burton free or reduced charge services it provides.

Each Hill-Burton facility can choose which types of services to provide at no charge or reduced cost.

  • The covered services are specified in a notice (Allocation Plan) which is published by the facility and also in a notice provided to all people seeking services in the facility.
  • Only facility costs are covered, not your private doctor's bills. Private pharmacy and private doctor fees are not covered by this program. However, services provided by doctors who are hired by the facility may be covered under the Hill-Burton program if included in the published notice.
  • Services fully covered by a third-party insurance or a government program such as Medicare and Medicaid are not eligible for Hill-Burton coverage. However, Hill-Burton may cover services not covered by government programs.

Hill-Burton facilities must also provide emergency treatment.
