Welcome to Minnesota Gastroenterology's online payment center. You may conveniently and securely pay your bill with a Visa, Master or Discover Card.
Minnesota Gastroenterology (MNGI) recommends that you call your insurance plan(s) prior to each new provider visit or service you receive to determine your specific benefits and coverage. Talking with your insurance plan(s) in advance does not guarantee coverage or payment for services, but will help you understand and prepare for any possible out-of-pocket health care expenses.
The following questions will help guide you through this process. If your insurance plan(s) inform you that you need additional information from MNGI before they can completely answer your questions, please call our Business Office at (612) 871-1145, option 5, and we will be happy to assist you.
Minnesota Gastroenterology (MNGI) strives to be consistent and compliant with the federal coding regulations set forth by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). We are not able to change coded charges in order to manipulate payment methodologies set forth by insurance companies.
Claim - A statement of services and associated costs provided to a patient by a provider's office, ambulatory surgical center (ASC), hospital or other provider facility. Claims are sent to insurance plans (most often by health care providers) and are then processed to determine what, if any, payment the plan will make.
Co-insurance - A requirement of some insurance plans that a patient must pay a percentage of any remaining medical expenses after the deductible has been satisfied.
Minnesota Gastroenterology understands that health care costs can contribute to, and even cause, financial hardship.
