UW Medicine provides financial assistance for any patient/guarantor whose gross family income is up to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and adjusted for family size after any third-party coverage has been exhausted. For facility and/or professional services at Airlift Northwest, Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center, UW Physicians, UW Medicine Primary Care, and Valley Medical Center:

  • 0% - 300% of the FPL for a 100% financial assistance discount

  • 301% - 350% of the FPL for a 75% financial assistance discount
  • 351% - 400% of the FPL for a 50% financial assistance discount
