Financial assistance programs

Patients with balances due from limited or no insurance coverage may qualify for assistance programs. Regions Hospital counselors work closely with patients to discuss insurance coverage, payment options or help you apply for County or State programs which may provide you with medical coverage. Regions Hospital also offers self-pay discounts and has assistance available based on income, family size and other economic guidelines. If you would like to contact them during your inpatient stay, they can be reached at 651-254-3400 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. They are also available in the Emergency Department around the clock.

If you have questions about a bill you have received from Regions Hospital after your stay, our representatives can assist you. They can be reached at 651-254-4791 (local), 877-974-3600 (toll free), Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
