Illness can strike anyone at any time. For many Virginia residents, health insurance is unaffordable and they are not financially able to pay for necessary medical treatment. It is those patients who can seek assistance through U.Va.’s Indigent Care Program. Last year, 27,000 indigent patients were treated at the U.Va. Health System, with the state and federal government contributing $42.6 million of the $53.7 million cost. The remaining $11.1 million was paid by U.Va. Full story.
