Frequently Asked Questions For Uninsured Patients
Virtua is dedicated to providing the highest quality healthcare for our community, regardless of ability to pay. We recognize that the cost of healthcare can be an excessive financial burden for our uninsured patients. For our uninsured patients who were ineligible for State or Federal assistance (e.g., Healthcare for the Uninsured, Charity Care, Medicaid), there is an opportunity for financial relief under the Virtua Charity Assistance Program. Learn about the New Jersey Catastrophic Illness in Children Relief Fund.
