COVID-19 INFORMATION Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO

Pricing & Financial Assistance

Pricing & Cost of Care Estimates

We want to help you be informed about out-of-pocket costs for care or services you will receive at CentraCare. To help you learn what your costs may be, we now offer a tool in MyChart you can use to create estimates for the cost of care.

Estimates in MyChart

Price Estimate Request Form

You also may use the Price Estimate Request form to learn how much a medical service or procedure will cost. Staff from CentraCare's Managed Care department will review your information and respond to you within two business days.

For questions, please call 320-251-2700, ext. 53129

Estimates for Scheduled Services

Once your procedure has been scheduled, a financial counselor may contact you to provide an estimate of the charges; to help you understand what your responsibility will be; and to discuss payment of the estimated balance due.

Our policy is to request patients pay their estimated patient responsibility prior to the procedure. If you are unable to pay in full the estimated patient balance prior to the procedure, we do offer an extended no interest payment plan option.

If you have questions, please call our financial counselor at 320-255-5616, ext. 55616.

Good Faith Estimate Disclosure

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit CMS.gov or call 1-320-251-2700, ext. 53129.
