Program eligibility requirements

Our Tanner Patient Financial Assistance Program covers payment for medically-necessary care. It does not cover routine co-pays and deductibles for patients who have health insurance coverage unless a hardship is documented. The program also excludes services that are not considered medically necessary, such as cosmetic surgery or fertility services.
