Financial Services

Independence Health System is committed to improving the health and wellness of every life we touch. As a part of this commitment, we work closely with patients to help them receive the appropriate level of care and work with them on how to meet their financial obligations for inpatient or outpatient hospital services.

Billing and Insurance - Independence Health System participates in most insurance plans, including Highmark and UPMC health plans, most Medicare Advantage and health maintenance organizations (HMOs). Please confirm your coverage with your insurance company.

Charity Care/Financial Assistance - As part of our commitment to the health care needs of our community, Independence Health System (IHS) has a program designed to provide financial assistance to our patients who may not be able to pay for part or all of their care provided they do not have active insurance in another covered network of providers.

Cost Estimator - Independence Health System offers a patient estimator tool, an online calculator that lets you see an estimated cost of common services.

No Surprises Act - You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost.

Pay My Bill - Some of our payments can be accepted through an online payer portal. Payments can securely be made using a credit or debit card, or checking account, through one of our online payment options that don’t require you to create an account. Click to see if your balance can be paid online.

Price Transparency - The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has a requirement for each hospital operating in the United States to provide clear, accessible pricing information online about the items and services they provide.
