Financial Assistance

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles recognizes that many people in our community require medically necessary health care services, but are uninsured, underinsured, ineligible for government health programs or otherwise without adequate financial resources to pay for health care services.

CHLA is committed, to the extent of its financial ability, to make medically necessary services available for those not able to pay. To manage its resources responsibly and to allow CHLA to provide the appropriate level of assistance to those in need, CHLA has adopted the following guidelines for the provision of Charity Care and Discounted Care.
