The Affordable Care Act and You

The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress and signed into law in 2010. It created benefits for people who do not have insurance or who may not have the right type of policy for their needs.

Hospital Bill Payment

Pay your bill, check your account, ask us a financial question. 

Provider Based Billing

Provider Based Billing refers to the billing process within the St. Joseph Hospital Physician Practices. Your current physician, clinical and office team will continue to provide and coordinate your health care. This transition provides increased continuity of care allowing us to continue to provide high quality medical care and services in a more coordinated way. 

Because of Medicare federal regulations, you will now receive two bills per visit. One bill will be for physician/provider services and one bill will be for facility charges.
