Medical Service Estimates
North Memorial Health helps empower customers to make meaningful price comparisons prior to receiving care and understand how much a particular medical service or treatment costs.
If you are looking for the cost of a procedure or healthcare visit, North Memorial Health will provide an estimate of payment for you from your health insurance plan. Estimates provided represent the average charge for services and member liability based on available insurance information at the time of estimate. Always confirm out of pocket costs and fees directly with your insurance provider.
How to Receive a Cost Estimate:
- Call North Memorial Health at 763-581-0960, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to begin the estimate process.
- Or, complete a cost estimate request form.
If You Have Health Insurance: North Memorial Health participates in many insurance plans and will bill any insurance company on your behalf. Because health insurance plan payments vary and benefit levels are unique to each plan, you may confirm out of pocket cost with your insurance carrier by calling the number on the back of your insurance card.
If You Do Not Have Health Insurance: North Memorial Health offers payment arrangements, financial assistance or an uninsured discount to patients experiencing difficulty paying their medical bills.

Health System Charges
North Memorial Health is committed to full transparency of health care pricing information. Included below are links to the average charges by Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) and standard charges for procedures and supplies at both North Memorial Health Hospital and Maple Grove Hospital. These charges are not what customers will be required to pay, but rather the amount that gets billed to insurance. Hospitals rarely get reimbursed the full charge amount. Private health insurers negotiate payment rates for their health plan participants and the state and federal governments set payment rates for those on public programs. If you do not have health insurance, there are financial assistance options available for those who qualify.
For a timely and accurate estimate of out-of-pocket costs for services, please use the price estimator tool above.
The links below include average charges by Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) which is a methodology used to categorize inpatient services. Each DRG has a weighted payment based on the average resources used to treat Medicare patients in that DRG.
