How to Access Services

If hospitalization may be needed, initial contact should be made via the appropriate regional human service center. Behavioral health professionals from the regional human service centers will refer an individual to the State Hospital for specialized inpatient services, if the individual meets criteria for severity of illness and intensity of service need.

Cost for Services

The North Dakota Legislature requires that the State Hospital provide for a portion of its allocated budget by collecting payment for services it provides. The cost of treatment is based on a daily rate that varies depending on the intensity of services required.

Like other hospitals, the State Hospital submits claims to patients' insurance companies, and also receives Medicaid funding for patients younger than 21 years of age or older than 65 years of age.

A sliding fee scale is available for individuals who do not have the resources to pay for their treatment. Hospital staff will work with patients and explain how the sliding fee scale works.
