Financial Assistance and Charity Care

Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters provides medical care to every child who needs it, regardless of the family’s financial situation. For families who don’t have health insurance or the resources to pay for our medical services, CHKD’s health benefits analysts can help determine eligibility for government insurance such as Medicaid.

Our health benefits analysts will also let you know if discounted or free care is an option, based on the federal poverty guidelines for income and family size as illustrated in the chart below.
