Yale Health Patient Hardship Fund

A group of nurses have established the Yale Health Patient Hardship Fund to provide financial support and assistance to eligible Yale Health members who are experiencing a financial hardship and are unable to secure funds to access care and/or adhere to a care plan ordered by Yale Health clinical staff.

The fund may provide resource recommendations, and potentially, financial assistance up to a maximum of $500.00 to eligible patient members based on need and a set of eligibility criteria. In short:
