Health Service Financing Program

Want more time to pay for your care? We partner with Commerce Bank to offer Health Services Financing (HSF®) Accounts enabling a simple, affordable way to pay your medical bills over a time period of up to 60 months. Patients and families are eligible for HSF® regardless of whether they have insurance, and without requiring a credit check. There are no set-up fees, charges or penalties for early payoffs, and patients can consolidate charges to one account with one monthly payment.

  • Peace of mind: multiple care charges can be financed on one open line of credit
  • Convenience of one monthly payment
  • Reduced confusion: a single consolidated statement

Community Care Program

Prairie Ridge Hospital and Health Services Community Care program was established to assist patients who do not qualify for medical assistance and whose annual income is at or below 175 percent of the federal poverty level.

The application is brief and asks for information about family size, employment and income, and banking information. If patients meet the guidelines, they will qualify for a write-off of 20 percent to 100 percent of their balance. Patients must apply for Medicaid and be found ineligible before they can qualify for the Community Care program.

We are committed to providing assistance to persons who have healthcare needs and are uninsured, underinsured, indigent, ineligible for government programs or otherwise unable to pay for medically necessary care based on their individual family situation. If you would like to discuss these options and/or have questions regarding bills received after your stay, please call Patient Financial Services at 218.685.7329.
