New & Improved Barnes-Kasson Patient Portal!
Barnes-Kasson's Patient Portal has been upgraded. Those patients who provided an email address during Hospital Registration will receive an invitation to complete their Patient Portal profile and sign in! We invite all hospital patients to log in and view, download, or securely transmit their medical information any time after discharge. For those who have previously registered, your Patient Portal username and password remains the same. You do not need to register again; you will just need to select new Challenge Questions.
For instructions on how to complete the Patient Portal registration process and log in, click here.
To access your medical record any time, click the "Patient Portal" link in the upper-left corner of the Barnes-Kasson Hospital website!
Coming Soon will be the ability to send messages directly to your provider from the Patient Portal. For more information on this feature please click here.

Affordable Care Act
As most Americans are aware, the Health Insurance Marketplace opened for public enrollment on October 1, 2013. Since then, many improvements have been made to ease the application process for the health insurance options.
There are four (4) main ways that a person can apply for Marketplace insurance coverage: online, by telephone, by paper application, or in person with an assistant. Although the Marketplace website (www.healthcare.gov) had start up problems, it is still the most real time method to shop for your own personal insurance and compare health plans. A person can create an account for the system, fill out the application, and obtain real-life, personal quotes for the various insurance plans and tax credits available.
To complete a telephone application, you can call 1-800-318-2596 where the Marketplace has customer service representatives to work with you to complete the application and enrollment process. Paper applications are also available by calling the number above. A PDF version of the paper application was added to the Marketplace website, so it can also be printed from there.
But here at Barnes-Kasson Hospital, we realize many people don’t feel comfortable using technology or have the technology available to use. We have trained staff members that are certified as application counselors to assist you in the application process. Our counselors will provide one on one assistance to complete your application or assist you with an ongoing application.
To schedule an appointment or ask general questions about the application process please contact:
