Minnesota’s New Hospital Presumptive Eligibility and Uninsured Discount Law

The new Hospital Presumptive Eligibility and Uninsured Discount Law will take effect November 1, 2023. Its provisions are reminiscent of the Attorney General Agreement requirements, but with some new twists.

In this session we will review the requirements of the new law, including:

When is a hospital required to screen a patient for charity care eligibility? All patients?

What must a hospital do to determine eligibility?

What can a hospital NOT do until eligibility is determined?

What new steps are hospitals required to take prior to referring medical debt to a debt collection agency or bringing an action for collection, including garnishment?

How do hospitals calculate the new uninsured discount required to be provided to patients?  Who is eligible for the new uninsured discount?

NOTE: This session is also intended to be a venue for participant dialog. We will encourage folks working with hospitals to share their interpretations of questions related to the new law. Come join us!

This CLE is approved for credit through October 12, 2025.
