If you don't qualify for Hennepin Care

If you are uninsured and living outside of Hennepin County and you do not meet the criteria for Hennepin Care financial assistance, you may be eligible for a public health care program such as Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare. Contact your county human services department or an HCMC financial counselor today at (612) 873-2767 to assist you with the application process.

As an uninsured patient, you are also eligible for the Self-Pay Discount. This discount is available to all HCMC uninsured patients, including those who live outside of Hennepin County.
