Does UAB offer charity care?

Question:

Does UAB offer charity care?

Answer:

UAB Hospital's Charity Care Program is for patients who are uninsured or under insured. Patients must be approved for UAB Hospital's Charity Care Program prior to receiving an appointment at The Kirklin Clinic of UAB Hospital or Affiliated Clinics. 

You may qualify for charity assistance, which is based on household size and household income. If you do not have insurance or any other third-party payment source, other assistance may be available.
