Patient Billing

About My Bill

You are responsible for paying any balance left on your account after insurance, which may include co-payments, deductibles, co-insurance, and services not covered. In most cases, you will receive one bill which will list your hospital and physician services.

Paying My Bill

Insured Patients – Patients with insurance will receive a bill for any balances that are determined your responsibility by your insurance company, which may include co-pays, deductibles, non-covered services, and coinsurance balances.
Uninsured Patients – Patients without insurance will receive a bill for the total charges minus any Hennepin Plan discounts if applicable.

What Your Payments Are Used For

The payments Hennepin Healthcare receives from patients or their insurance companies or public programs are used to keep our medical center and mission alive. Hennepin Healthcare is owned and operated by Hennepin Healthcare System, Inc., a public subsidiary corporation owned by Hennepin County. Most of our funding comes from payments for health care services.

Hospital-Based Clinics

Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read our FAQs about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
