Patient Overseas Financial Aid Programme
Administered on behalf of the Bermuda Government, Ministry of Health and Family Services, the programme assists patients in financial need who must be sent overseas for medical and surgical treatments not available in Bermuda. The programme recognizes that certain patients have little or no insurance and limited ability to pay. Our trained staff will work with the patient in order to find the right solution. Find out more.

The LCCA assists Bermudians in need both financially and emotionally providing advice and counseling services, help with utility and other bills including prescription drugs, and help with children with special needs. Find out more.
Some of our success stories
Helping the ForgottenI think of you all every day and am so grateful of everything that you have done for me and my son. As years go on, people like us are forgotten about, but you are always willing to help. Our life has not been easy these last couple of months. As I am so busy taking care of my son, it has been very hard to get this letter of appreciation out to you. Every day is very hard, so please forgive me. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, for your assistance. May God bless each and every one of you and your families. LW
Compassion in AbundanceI am a veteran nurse of more than forty years, and I know the meaning of compassion. Last year, I faced a medical emergency that required my travelling to the USA. I applied to the LCCA for assistance, and without hesitation my need was met. The Lady Cubitt Compassionate Association of Bermuda shows compassion in abundance. Submitted by Ms. Cynthia DeSilva
Making the difference in saving baby Titan.‘Compassionate? Yes!...and more…The LCCA is an association that lives up to its name because of the loving and caring people that work there, and the benefit that it offers to families in critical, time-sensitive health crises situations, who are in need of financial assistance. A medical social worker talked to us about the LCCA, my son Thai Pogson and I went there immediately, and the workers there handled our case professionally and reassured us that we did not have to worry about a thing. Within one hour, we had a financial plan set, and Titan’s paperwork on our end was complete. Eleven hours later I was flying to Halifax with Titan. Titan returned to King Edward Hospital here in Bermuda via air-ambulance at the end of January, and was able to go home for the first time on February 19th. Had it not been for the LCCA, I do not know what Titan’s fate would have been.’ Submitted by Patricia Nesbitt
