Insurance and Billing

Grand Itasca offers financial help to patients who cannot pay all or part of their medical bills. You may apply for help through one of our financial assistance programs: Community Care or Senior Partners. These programs cover charges for many of our services.

Grand Itasca also accepts most major medical insurance. If you do not have medical coverage, uninsured discounts may be available to you. Payment plans are also available to patients, regardless of their insurance coverage.

Financial Assistance Policy

Covers: Emergency and medically needed care

Pricing Information

Disclaimer and explanation for standard hospital charges

Hospitals determine standard charges for patient services with the use of a chargemaster system, which is a list of charges for the components of patient care that go into every patient's bill. These are the baseline rates for services provided at this hospital.

Standard charges shown in the attached file do not necessarily reflect what a patient may pay. Government insurance plans such as Medicare and Medicaid do not pay the chargemaster rates, but rather have their own set rates which hospitals are obligated to accept. Commercial insurance payments are based on contract negotiations with managed care payors and may or may not reflect the standard charges. Patients without commercial insurance or not covered by a government health care plan should contact the hospital prior to a procedure to discuss charges, alternative pricing, and payment terms.

Please note that prices offered are estimates only – procedure costs will vary based on your specific circumstances including health insurance status and changes in coverage; length of time spent in the hospital; additional tests or procedures ordered by your physician; or any unforeseen conditions or circumstances surrounding your care or recovery.

Medication prices reflect the price for the entire package that the pharmacy purchased and may not reflect the price of the dose an individual patient receives. 

If you have health insurance and would like a price estimate, please contact your insurance provider by calling the telephone number on the back of your health insurance member card or by visiting their website. The Affordable Care Act requires health insurance companies to provide pricing information to their customers, including both the hospital portion as well as the physician services.

If you do not have health insurance and would like to receive an estimate of your financial responsibility for an upcoming service or procedure, please call us at 218-326-3401, and we can help determine the estimated cost of an upcoming service or procedure.
