Insurance questions

At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Houston, there are no barriers to care. Doctors determine the course of care and all care is provided regardless of the families' ability to pay. For families with insurance, the hospital will accept payment from insurance providers. However, insurance coverage is not required for care. Any child under 18 with a medical condition that is within the scope of services provided is eligible for care.

For insurance-related questions, please call our financial counseling hotline at 713-793-3986.
