Financial counseling is available through St. Vincent Health’s business office. If you have any questions regarding financial or insurance matters, please contact our financial counselor after reading this page.
Patients with Insurance or Medicare
We will bill your insurance carrier for the cost of your hospital stay. However, you are required to pay any charges not covered by insurance. It is necessary that arrangements be made for settling your bill before discharge from the hospital.
Your Hospital Bill
Your hospital bill pays many skilled people serving you 24 hours a day. It pays for modern drugs and advanced equipment needed for your health care, carefully planned meals and personalized, around-the-clock professional care.
The bill does not include charges for physicians involved in your care such as your personal physician, surgeon, pathologist, anesthesiologist, radiologist, or other physician consultants. You will receive separate bills from these physicians.
St. Vincent Health strives to ensure that the financial capacity of people who need health care services does not prevent them from seeking or receiving care.
Financial counseling assists patients in gaining access to government sources of medical assistance such as Medicaid, as well as other state and local programs.
Financial Assistance/Sliding Fee Scale
Financial assistance/Sliding fee scale is available to uninsured patients who qualify based on the data set forth on our charity care policy, which provides discounted or free care to qualifying patients.

Flexible Payment Plans
Flexible payment plans are offered based on financial status and total amount due. We strive to help patients satisfy their financial obligations in a fair manner based on individual circumstances.
In order to provide the best service, it is essential that our patients provide the necessary information that allows us to offer discounts and other forms of financial assistance.
