The University of Vermont Health Network – Porter Medical Center is committed to treating all patients equitably, with dignity and respect regardless of the patient’s healthcare insurance benefits or financial resources. For people with essential health care needs that are medically necessary and are uninsured, under-insured, ineligible for a government program or otherwise unable to pay, we have financial assistance programs in place. Your inability to pay for medical services should not prevent you from receiving the care you need.
Porter Medical Center has Patient Financial Service Advocates who can help identify, assist, and support our patients with financial assistance to pay for their medical care. Assistance available includes assessing the patients’ eligibility, linking patients to available government funding sources, and determining whether they are eligible for charity care or financial hardship treatment.
