Rice Hospital in Willmar, Minn., offers 'amnesty' to pay off old patient bills


WILLMAR -- Got an old unpaid bill at Rice Memorial Hospital?

The hospital recently began offering "amnesty" in the form of a 25 percent discount to patients who pay off the entire balance for care they received Jan. 31 or earlier.

It's the first time Rice has done so, and hospital officials hope patients take advantage of the amnesty to settle older bills.
