Financial assistance programs

Patients with balances due resulting from limited or no insurance coverage may qualify for our financial assistance programs. Regions Hospital financial counselors work closely with patients to discuss insurance coverage, government programs and other payment options. If you are not eligible for any of these programs, Regions Hospital has financial assistance available to uninsured or underinsured people based on income, family size and other economic guidelines. The counselors are able to assist patients in enrolling in government programs, in looking for other sources of payment, in taking financial assistance applications and helping self-pay patients set up payment plans.

If you do not have health insurance, a Regions Hospital financial counselor will discuss financial options with you. If you would like to make an appointment with a Financial Counselor, please call 651-254-0842.

Committed to meeting your needs

Regions Hospital is committed to meeting the medical needs of the community. This includes offering financial assistance for those patients who need medical care but have difficulty with expenses. However, we do expect our patients to pursue all sources of payment for expenses before financial assistance can be granted.

More information can be found in our financial assistance policy. If you wish to apply, please use the Regions financial application.

The financial assistance application must be completed in its entirety to process the application.

In addition, we may require copies of your most recent federal tax returns and/or other verifications of household income(s).

If you are currently receiving disability income, provide a copy of your most recent award sheet as well as a copy of your most recent tax return.

When your application and documents arrive, they will be reviewed. Assistance is based on federal poverty guidelines, size of family, household income and expenses, etc. We expect our patients to pursue all sources of payment for expenses before help can be granted.

You will be notified by mail about the outcome of your application.
