Financial Assistance Program
Our goal is to provide financial assistance quickly and easily to those in financial need that are being treated at Northwestern Medical Group. This fund is for those expenses that people are generally not prepared for- caregiver services, COBRA insurance coverage, parking, lodging, etc. The Reaumond Foundation Board personally meets with all applicants who are referred by medical professionals involved in their care.
