We’re here to help you understand your bill and insurance coverage. The Billing Office is located on the third floor in the Gold Wing. If you have any questions about your insurance or hospital charges, stop by or call our business office at 651-430-4533 or toll free at 1-877-430-4533.
We know that health care costs add up quickly. We provide financial assistance so you can pay for the medical care you need.
To apply for financial assistance, you must fill out an application form. Application forms must be returned to Lakeview Hospital 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 current or potential 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. Our Know Your Cost team members are here to help you understand the costs of different procedures.
All you have to do is answer questions about the services you need. Then they’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 1-844-997-2678.
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.
You can also see our list of clinic cost estimates. These costs are accurate for Jan. 1, 2020 – Dec. 31, 2020. They reflect data from HealthPartners, Blue Cross Blue Shield, PreferredOne and Medica. If you have another insurance company, your cost may be different.
