Financial Assistance

Children’s National has a Financial Assistance Policy (FAP) to provide eligible patients with discounted emergency or other medically necessary healthcare services provided by Children’s National. 
Children’s National will provide, without discrimination, care for emergency medical conditions to individuals regardless of whether they are eligible for Financial Assistance. Children’s National complies with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) by providing medical screening examinations and stabilizing treatment and referring or transferring an individual to another facility, when appropriate, and provide emergency services. Children’s National prohibits any actions that would discourage individuals from seeking emergency medical care.
