Billing Collection Policy
When you are responsible for portions of your bill such as insurance co-payments and deductibles or for balances remaining after financial assistance approval, we can work with you on payment arrangements. If these payments are not made and you do not contact us, we may use the services of a third-party agency to follow up with you on collection of the payment. Understand what this could mean for you.
Amounts Generally Billed
If you qualify for financial assistance, BJC hospitals cannot charge you more than the amounts generally billed to individuals with health insurance. Learn more about how amounts generally billed are calculated to ensure you are not being charged more than a patient with insurance coverage.
