Insurance and Financial Information

Financial Assistance Program

Mayo Regional Hospital is committed to treating all patients who need our care regardless of health insurance or financial status. Learn about Mayo’s Financial Assistance Program.

How your hospital bill works

Your hospital bill is based on the charges incurred while you are a patient, including room, nursing care and other hospital ancillary services—plus any outstanding balance from pre-hospitalization testing performed at Mayo Hospital. If you have insurance coverage, you may have co-payments or deductibles determined by your insurer.

Helpful things to remember when visiting the hospital:

Please remember, it is your responsibility to bring proof of insurance to every visit to the hospital or to the provider practices. Your copayments are expected at the time of your visit.

You will be asked to verify your address, phone number, and other contact information at every visit to ensure that our records are correct.

Know your insurance policy. We post the payments as they come to us. If you have an issue with a deductible or co-payment, please contact your insurance carrier directly, because Mayo does not know the details of individual policies.
