Understanding Your Bill
St. Joe's is committed to providing you with the best medical care possible. We want to help you understand your bill and make sure any questions you have are answered.
- How much do I really owe?
After your insurance company has processed your claim, we will bill you for your part of the bill. Most insurance plans require patients to pay part of their hospital bill.
If you have questions about your insurance, please contact your insurance company. If you do not have insurance, you are responsible for your hospital bill. We give an automatic discount for patients without insurance coverage.
- What if I cannot pay?
In keeping with our mission, we are proud to provide financial assistance based on resources, income, and household size. We may be able to help you with all or part of your responsibility for hospital services. Financial assistance is available to all patients.
If you would like to pay your bill over time in smaller payments, we can help you set up a payment plan.
Please reference the Financial Assistance Application.
- Why did I receive a separate doctor, ambulance, or laboratory bill?
Many doctors, ambulance companies, and laboratories who work with St. Joe's are not St, Joe's employees. They're separate businesses with their own billing. If you have insurance questions, contact their office directly.
Hospital-Based Outpatient Care
“Provider-Based” or “Hospital-Based Outpatient” refers to the billing process for services rendered in a hospital outpatient clinic or location. This is the national model of practice for integrated health systems involved in patient care and St. Joseph Regional Medical Center follows these very specific billing practices as regulated by the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services.
This means that patient may receive two bills: One from the hospital (the technical component) and one for the practitioner’s professional services.
St. Joe's accepts the following forms of payment:
- Credit card and debit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover)
- Personal check
- Money order
- Cash, when presented in person
