Patient Financial Services
The University of Vermont Health Network - Alice Hyde 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, underinsured, 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.
Alice Hyde Medical Center has a Patient Financial Services Representative 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.
Patients without insurance are identified as early as possible in the registration/admission process. We offer a 48% discount off charges for those patients without insurance. This offer is automatically extended at the time of initial billing, no application required.
A new federal price transparency regulation requires U.S. hospitals to publish data on all of the charges for services we provide. Visit our price transparency web page.
