Financial Assistance

What is Financial Assistance?

Financial assistance is free or discounted care for those who cannot afford it.

Financial assistance is not the only way to get help paying for your medical bills. Payment plans and insurance support are also available. One of our financial advisors would be happy to help you understand your options.

To talk with a financial advisor, call 218-546-7000.

Prior to receiving financial assistance, patients are expected to pay for what they’re able and complete an application for qualified health insurance.

5 $71,950
6 $82,400
