Patient Billing Information
It is our goal to process your hospital bill correctly and in a timely manner. Our staff will file claims for you with your health insurance carrier or other programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. We need your help to collect needed information and other requirements to obtain coverage or assistance. Please bring your insurance card and any authorizations required under your health plan with you when you come to the hospital.
After your insurance company pays us, we will send you a statement about any remaining balance you may owe. Insurance billing specialists are available to help you with any billing questions. Payment in full is due upon receipt of your statement.
You may receive separate bills for physician services, such as professional interpretation by a radiologist or specialty physician consultation. These charges are not billed by our facility. If you have questions about these charges, please call the telephone number listed on that bill.
If you are unable to pay your balance in full, please contact the patient account representative immediately to make payment arrangements. You may call us at 218-485-4481 or toll free at 888-322-4481 to set up payment arrangements.
Financial Assistance Information
If you do not have health care coverage, please ask the receptionist to talk to a patient account representative for assistance.
A discount will be offered for medically necessary services to any patient without health insurance who has an income level of $125,000 or less.
Financial aid will be offered to insured and uninsured patients that meet the criteria outlined in our financial assistance policy.
