Our Dedication to Patients in Need of Financial Assistance
Montefiore Einstein has consistently been at the forefront in establishing model programs for financial assistance for our patients who need help. Ours was one of the first medical centers in all of New York State to voluntarily establish its own financial assistance programs. Our current program, which includes a multilingual information and counseling component, has been applauded by numerous organizations for its excellence, including the Legal Aid Society, which awarded our program excellent ratings.
