We’re here to help you understand your bill and insurance coverage. If you have any questions about your hospital charges or financial assistance, our patient account representatives are available to help from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Due to precautions for COVID-19, we encourage you to contact us by calling our patient financial services office at 715-531-6200.
We know that health care costs can add up quickly. We offer financial assistance to help you afford the medical care you need.
To apply for financial assistance, you must fill out an application form. Application forms must be returned to Hudson Hospital & Clinic in-person, by mail or by fax. Patients will need to provide documentation verifying income (such as a federal income tax return) and information about health insurance coverage (such as Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance).
Information on eligibility, how to apply and how we calculate financial assistance is described in our financial assistance policy.

Knowing how much your medical care will cost before you visit a doctor can help you plan for upcoming health care needs. Here are some helpful resources.
Our patient account representatives are here to help you understand the costs of different procedures. You’ll talk to a real person and get a detailed estimate. All you have to do is answer questions about the services you need, then we’ll walk you through information about surgeries, imaging tests, lab work and other treatment options. Remember, this is just a cost estimate. Actual charges may be different based on the services you need.
For a cost estimate, call 715-531-6200.
You can use our online patient estimate tool to get a cost estimate and learn about how much you’ll likely pay out-of-pocket.

Price Point is a website that allows you to access service cost information for the top 75 Inpatient and Outpatient procedures performed at Wisconsin Health Care Facilities, including Hudson Hospital & Clinic. Medical facilities report data to the WHA (Wisconsin Hospital Association) Information Center on a quarterly basis, making recent charge and pricing information available to consumers.
The federal government requires hospitals to post their standard charges (PDF) reflecting each inpatient and outpatient service and item provided by the hospital. The list is available here: Hudson Hospital Standard Charges.
Hudson is committed to making outstanding care available to you in the right place, at the right time. Our standard charges may be far different from the amounts you are expected to pay. We have negotiated varying discounts with Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans.
If you don’t have insurance, you may be eligible for financial assistance. To learn more, please call our patient account representatives at 715-531-6200. The Wisconsin Hospital Association provides additional information about our charges, as well as charges at other hospitals.
We’re required to keep an updated list of providers that offer emergency or other medically necessary care for Hudson Hospital. This lists which providers are covered by our financial assistance policy and which are not.
