Financial Services

Thank you for choosing FirstLight Health System for your care.

Patient Billing Information
It is our goal to process your healthcare bill correctly and in a timely manner. Our staff will file claims for you with your health insurance carrier or other programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. We need your help to collect needed information and other requirements to obtain coverage or assistance. Please bring your insurance card and any authorizations required under your health plan when you come to FirstLight.

After your insurance company pays us, we will send you a statement about any remaining balance you may owe. Insurance billing specialists are available to help you with any billing questions. Payment in full is due upon receipt of your statement. You may receive separate bills for physician services, such as professional interpretation by a radiologist or specialty physician consultation. These charges are not billed by our facility. If you have questions about these charges, please call the telephone number listed on that bill.

Payment Arrangements
If you are unable to pay your balance in full, please contact a patient account representative immediately to make payment arrangements. You may call us at 320-225-3340 or toll-free at 800-245-5671 to set up payment arrangements.

Financial Assistance
Financial aid will be offered to insured patients that meet the criteria outlined in our financial assistance policy. An application may be picked up in the business office or can be mailed to you upon request. Proof of income will be required to determine if you qualify. A portion or the entire amount of your charge may qualify for this write off.
