Hill-Burton Act: Free or Low Cost Care

When Can I Apply For Hill-Burton Assistance?

Next » « Previous


You may apply for Hill-Burton assistance at any time, before or after you receive care. You may even apply after a bill has been sent to a collection agency. Of course, it is always better to apply before you receive services to lessen the stress of worrying how you will pay for your care.

If a hospital obtains a court judgment against you before you apply for Hill-Burton assistance, the solution must be worked out within the judicial system. However, if you applied for Hill-Burton before a judgment was rendered and are found eligible, you will receive Hill-Burton even if a judgment was rendered while you were waiting for a response to your application.
