We request that you pay your bill within 30 days of receipt of your statement. If you need more time to pay your bill, you must contact us to set up a payment arrangement. Under this arrangement, we will allow you to pay your bill in monthly, interest-free installments. You must contact us to establish this agreement.

If you require more time to pay than allowed under the interest-free options, we will offer you a payment plan with interest at the prime interest rate.

To keep your account in good standing, you must set up an acceptable payment arrangement and make regular monthly payments. Accounts not kept in good standing may be referred to a collection agency.

Other Bills 

You may receive separate bills from other providers who cared for you during your stay such as emergency providers and providers who interpret test results (radiologists or pathologists).
