Financial Assistance Program


The Care You Need, Close to Home.

Mount Desert Island Hospital is committed to treating all patients who need our care regardless of their health insurance or financial status. Our Hospital and Health Centers offer services to help you arrange for payment of your bill, from insurance billing to payment plans, as well as financial assistance, which may qualify you for Free or Reduced Care.

MDI Hospital gives Free Care to Maine residents with family income at 150% or less of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines and Reduced Care to those at 151-250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Reduced Care provides a sliding reduction of the balance of your account based on your income. Click here to see income guidelines.

Our Financial Assistance Program covers only medically necessary care. You will be asked if you have insurance of any kind to help pay for your care. You may also be asked to verify that an insurance or government program will not pay for your care. If you do not qualify for Free/Reduced Care, you are entitled to ask for a fair hearing.
