Financial counseling and assistance

Financial counseling helps families who need financial support. Caring professionals assist families with concerns related to medical expenses and walk them through the entire process of applying for Medical Assistance (MA), TEFRA, Children’s Minnesota financial assistance application for a discount, spend down, and Emergency Medical Assistance.

They also offer assistance with questions regarding Supplemental Social Security Income (SSI), billing statements, and online payments through the Children’s Minnesota website.
