What is Hispanocare?

Hispanocare is a program of Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with nearly one hundred highly skilled physicians and specialists located throughout Chicago. All Hispanocare medical offices have physicians or professional staff members who can speak to you in Spanish about your health problems and concerns. We understand your language and culture and want you to feel comfortable with your health care.

How Does Hispanocare Work?

Each time you use a Hispanocare network provider you receive a 20% discount on the portion of your medical expenses not covered by your insurance. For example, if you were hospitalized and you have a bill for $11,000, and your insurance covers 80% of that bill (8,800), you are still responsible for paying the remaining $2,200. As a Hispanocare member, you receive a 20% discount on $2,200. You pay only $1,760, a savings of $440. "This discount does not apply to any deductibles or co-payments. These must be met before any discounts are applied." In addition to discounts on hospital and doctor bills, Hispanocare members also save money on dental, eye care, foot care, chiropractor, free prescription discount card, hearing aids, and so much more. Best of all, as a Hispanocare member, you have access to nearly one hundred of highly skilled physicians and specialists offices. The Hispanocare Provider Directory provides the names and addresses of all participating physicians. Because we are not an insurance plan, all Hispanocare providers accept any and all pre-existing conditions, have no limitations, and have no claim forms to complete.

What else does Hispanocare offer?

Hispanocare and its network provider's coordinate free community health events and screenings, including our annual "Hispanocare Health Fair". Members are kept up-to-date on the latest health information through our on-line member newsletter, Por su Salud (For your Health).

What If I don't have Insurance?

Hispanocare is not an insurance plan, but a program that discounts out-of -pocket medical expenses when you use a Hispanocare provider. If you do not have an insurance plan, the Hispanocare membership can save you 20%-30% on services.

What if I'm not sure which doctor to choose?

All Hispanocare physicians and specialists are either bilingual in Spanish and English, or have bilingual staff. If you would like help in finding a physician, please call the Hispanocare Referral Line at 773.296.7157. We will be happy to assist you in finding a physician located near you.

Save on your prescriptions. With the FREE NeedyMeds Drug Discount-card saves you up to 80% off the cost of: Prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs and more. This card can be used by those without insurance and by those who decide not to use their insurance.
