Cook County Health and Hospitals System’s mission is to provide healthcare with dignity and respect regardless of a patient’s ability to pay, however federal rules require us to send bills to all patients.

Please keep in mind, if you are uninsured and do not apply for financial assistance, you will be responsible for the full amount of your bill. We offer several different financial assistance options for patients who need help paying their bills. No patient will be denied Cook County Health and Hospitals System services based on ability to pay.
