Financial assistance programs


Learn about Fairview's charity care and uninsured discount programs

Fairview treats all patients with dignity and respect, regardless of their ability to pay. We have a number of programs to assist patients with payment. We want to ensure access to high quality medical care for all. Our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve.

Fairview Charity Care
Fairview's Charity Care program covers charges for most Fairview services. To qualify for the program, you must meet income restrictions. Learn more about our Financial Assistance policy and Billing and Collections policy.

Uninsured Hospital Patient Discount
Fairview provides an upfront discount to uninsured patients for hospital and hospital-based clinic services that are medically necessary. The discount will appear on your bill.

To qualify for the discount:
  • patient or account guarantor must be a Minnesota resident
  • patient must have no insurance
  • services must be medically necessary, and
  • Fairview must provide the services

Patients who receive the uninsured discount may also apply for Fairview's Charity Care Program. If you have questions, call 612-672-6724 or (toll-free) 866-417-3560. 

Pharmacy Community Care
Fairview's Pharmacy Assistance Fund provides one-time prescription assistance to patients experiencing financial hardship. Eligible patients typically have no prescription drug benefits and/or have exhausted their coverage and are not eligible for—and have no access to—alternative sources of coverage or funding (such as Medicaid, MinnesotaCare and Medicare).

Home Care and Hospice Community Care
Fairview’s Home Care and Hospice Community Care program covers most charges for home care and hospice services. Income limits apply.

Note: If you received care at Fairview Range in Hibbing, please call their billing office.
