Do I have to pay my co-payment at the time of service?

Yes, you are expected to pay your estimated co-payment for the services that are provided.

When Will I Receive a Bill?

If your insurance information was verified when you registered, you will not receive a bill until:

  • Your insurance company has paid the claim, leaving a coinsurance, deductible, or non-covered services.
  • Your insurance company has denied the claim and indicated patient responsibility.
  • Your insurance company has not responded to the claim.

If you do not have insurance, a bill will be sent after you receive your service. Please contact us to find out if you qualify for financial assistance at 1-877-304-6332.

What if I Receive More Than One Bill?

You may receive multiple bills from other professionals. These bills are for services provided by independent physicians, anesthesiologists, radiologists, or other professionals. If you have questions about a specific bill, please call the phone number listed on that bill.

In addition, you may receive multiple bills from Ascension Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare. We make every attempt to provide you with a combined hospital and physician statement, but there are times when the registration information may vary between accounts. If you incorrectly receive multiple bills, please contact Customer Service at 1-877-304-6332.

How Can I Request an Itemized Bill?

You may request an itemized bill online or call the Customer Service at 1-877-304-6332. Be sure to communicate the Account Number from you statement if you are leaving a message.

When Do I Become Responsible for My Bill?

You are legally responsible for your bill at the time you receive services. We require all balances be paid by the due date listed on your statement.
