Can I apply for financial help for my hospital bill if I can’t pay the rest of my bill?
Yes. If your insurance has paid part of the bill but you need help in paying your balance, you can apply for Charity Care.
Why do I need to look for other funds before I receive financial help?
No single organization can meet the needs of all patients who are unable to pay. Patients who need financial help should use all resources for which they are qualify.
What factors determine the help I’ll receive?
Patients qualify for help based on income, assets and family size. If you qualify, you may get a 50-100 percent discount on medically necessary services. If a family has cash/IRA/stock/401K/bank account assets totaling $25,000 up to $500,000, at least ten (10) percent of the available assets must be applied to the balance due to Fairview before the person/family will qualify for financial assistance. If assets exceed $500,000, they are not eligible for Financial Assistance.
Does Fairview offer other discounts besides Charity Care?
Yes. Uninsured Minnesota and Wisconsin residents will receive a discount on medically-needed hospital services. The discount will show up on your bill. People who receive the uninsured discount may also apply for Fairview’s Charity Care program.
