Financial Assistance Policy
The Financial Assistance Policy assures that patients who are unable to pay hospital charges are evaluated for financial assistance eligibility on a nondiscriminatory basis. The policy is consistent with the mission and values of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and takes into account each patient’s ability to pay the cost of his or her care. Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is committed to ensuring a financially sound organization so that it may continue to provide outstanding medical care with a highly skilled work force employing the latest advances.
Florida Pricing Transparency
Nicklaus Children's Hospital believes you have the right to understand your healthcare options and the cost of care. Posted prices are general estimates and do not reflect your personal financial responsibility. The prices provided on this website and our facilities are an estimate of charges for most hospital services without complications. There may be variations to prices based on services received (i.e. surgery time) as well as additional supporting areas required (i.e. anesthesia, radiology, etc.). Your final bill will include charges for the actual services provided to you and your financial responsibility.
Please note that physicians and private ancillary services will bill separately from the hospital. If you are covered by health insurance, we encourage you to contact your insurance company to confirm benefit information under your policy, for a particular health care service provided at this facility.

If you are not covered by health insurance, you are strongly encouraged to contact our Financial Counselor to discuss payment options prior to receiving services from the hospital. For more information, please call 305-669-6525 or email EAS@nicklaushealth.org.
