Medicaid and Social Services Support
A Patient Financial Advocate will ask you a few questions to see if you meet the initial requirements. If you do, you will be referred to one of our Medicaid vendors, Human Arc of Ohio or Firstsource Solutions. They will work with you and the state to secure Medicaid coverage.
Please comply with our vendor company and the process so you can remain eligible for Cleveland Clinic financial assistance. In Florida, we do not contract with a Medicaid vendor company, but we do have a representative on site to assist you.
Patients who do not qualify for HCAP or Medicaid will next be considered under the Cleveland Clinic financial assistance policy.

Comprehensive Hospital Charges
The information provided below is a comprehensive list of charges provided by our hospital, also known as a chargemaster or CDM. The hospital’s charges are the same for all patients, but a patient’s responsibility may vary, depending on payment plans negotiated with individual health insurance companies and a patient’s out of pocket responsibility (i.e. deductible, co-insurance, copays, etc.). Uninsured or underinsured patients should consult with our patient financial advocates to determine whether they qualify for discounts. Please bear in mind that few patients will pay the charge amount listed because of insurance coverage.
