Financial Assistance

INSURANCE
We accept most types of insurance including Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare, BadgerCare, and Medicare. Please call us if to find out if we accept your insurance. All insurance co-payments are required to be paid at the time of the visit. We accept cash, check or credit card.

All patients without insurance are requested to meet with the Health Care Access Office staff to determine eligibility for public health insurance or other programs that will help pay for your health care services.

SLIDING FEE PROGRAM
If you do not have medical or dental insurance or if your insurance does not cover certain services, you may be eligible to enroll in our Sliding Fee Program. Fees are discounted based on household size and income.  You will be asked to provide proof of household income, usually the 1040 tax form from the most recent year, a copy of your W-2s, Social Security or pension statements, pay stubs, and any other income received by your household prior to obtaining services. If you do not qualify for the Sliding Fee Program, you will be billed for the full amount.

All patients on the Sliding Fee Program are required to pay a minimum fee at the time of each visit.

BILLING
Patient billing statements are sent out monthly. For questions about your bill or to make a payment, please call our billing staff at 218-722-1497, ext. 589 and 559 (medical) or 218-628-7035, ext. 503 (dental).
