Fairview Charity Care

Getting help paying your hospital bills
The Charity Care program covers charges for most Fairview hospitals. You may qualify if your income is at or below 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see chart below).

Before applying for the Charity Care program, you may be asked to first apply for help with the county or state. If you currently have no coverage and are a Minnesota resident, please visit the MNsure website or call 1-855-366-7873. If you are not a Minnesota resident, visit your state's health care reform website. If you have coverage and are not sure if you're eligible for additional coverage through the Affordable Care Act, contact our office at 612-672-6724.

Services covered

The Fairview Charity Care program covers charges for most Fairview hospital-based and clinic-based services. It does not cover charges for:

  • Care that is not needed (care not approved by a Fairview doctor or trial treatments)
  • Care not offered at Fairview
  • Services given at Fairview by independent providers
  • Services not billed by Fairview
  • Services related to transplant

Fairview's Charity Care Program does not include care received in free-standing ambulatory service centers. This is covered under Fairview's Charity Care Program. Fairview has a number of financial assistance programs.

If you do not know whether the care you are seeking is covered by Fairview Charity Care, please ask us. If you have questions, call 612-672-6724 or (toll-free) 866-417-3560. Or if you are in the Range/Hibbing area, call 218-362-6624 or toll-free 877-390-6624
