Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance Offered

Broward Health provides financial assistance through its Financial Assistance Program to defray the costs of emergency or medically necessary services to uninsured patients who permanently reside within Broward Health’s residential boundaries and for which no other funding sources exist.

How to Apply for Assistance

In order to apply for financial assistance, applicants must gather all information requested on the financial assistance checklist and meet personally with a Broward health financial counselor to complete a financial assistance application online. 

Eligibility Requirements

Each financial assistance application and income statement will serve to determine eligibility for all uninsured household family members listed within the application.

Applicants must first apply for available assistance programs (examples include, but are not limited to, Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid, Medicare, Florida KidCare, etc.) and comply with the application process, in order to be deemed eligible for Broward Health financial assistance.  Failure to do so will result in denial of the application or revocation of the approved financial assistance.

In accordance with the Federal Poverty Guidelines a qualified/approved applicant whose family income falls below or at 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines will receive full financial assistance with a $10 or $25 co-pay responsibility (depending upon income level).   

Applicants must provide proof of United States citizenship or permanent legal residency and have resided within the geographical boundaries of Broward Health for no less than 30 days prior to the date of service to be eligible for financial assistance.

Amounts Generally Billed

A patient determined to be eligible for financial assistance will not be charged more than the amounts generally billed for emergency or other medically necessary care to individuals who have insurance covering such care.

Broward Health MOPED Program

Are you without Health Insurance? We Can Help!

The Medical Options for Patient Eligibility Department (M.O.P.E.D.) is a community outreach and financial assistance program that was established to make a difference in people’s lives. There are critical economic challenges currently affecting many people in our community. MOPED is part of Broward Health’s solution and commitment to provide our community with world-class healthcare, just like we have for more than 75 years.

Broward Health has various financial assistance programs that can assist with hospital inpatient, emergency, and outpatient accounts in addition to clinic visits. The MOPED Program offers the following support in eligibility processing for:

  • Healthcare Exchange products
  • Medicaid, including Medicaid PSN and Medicaid HMOs
  • Florida KidCare, Healthy Kids
  • Financial Assistance
  • Other State and Federally funded programs

The goal of MOPED is to improve access to medical care for those living within Broward Health's service area, and is achieved by enrolling those that qualify into Medicaid, Healthcare Exchange, and other financial assistance programs. In order to attract patients who would otherwise be dissuaded from seeking out medical insurance, MOPED works to make the process as seamless and as comfortable for patients as possible. Individuals seeking additional information about the program have the option to call, or visit the office conveniently located at the Broward Health location closest to you.

All paperwork and forms for the application process are conveniently done in the MOPED office, which allows for faster processing. Patients are supervised by a staff member throughout the entire process, and are required to bring their medical bill(s), personal forms and documents, and identification with them in order to complete the application process.

Since the inception of the Program, more than 105,000 patients have visited the MOPED office.

Failure to supply the required information within 10 business days will result in a denial for assistance. You must apply for any available local, state, or federally-funded health insurance programs for which you or any listed uninsured family member may qualify, e.g. Medicaid, Florida KidCare, etc. Failure to do so will result in a denial of your application.

This healthcare provider has available ambulatory primary health care services and no one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay. There is a discounted sliding fee schedule available to those who qualify. Financial counselors are available to assist consumers.

You must complete a new application prior to your expiration date. All information is subject to verification. Providing false information may result in the DENIAL of any type of Financial Assistance through Broward Health.
