 Hospital Billing Policies

Thank you for choosing University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center for your health care needs!



IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR NEED ASSISTANCE WITH YOUR BILL:  We provide Patient Account Representatives to assist you.  They furnish information, make payment arrangements and help you resolve insurance billing problems.

BY PHONE - Our Customer Service Representatives are at 440-329-7833, Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

IN PERSON - You may meet with a representative at the hospital Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The representatives are next to the cashier in the main lobby at UH Elyria Medical Center [630 East River Street, Elyria, OH 44035].


CHARGES:  Although hospital charges can be high, we work to keep our prices the lowest in our community.  A price list of our most common services is published for you.  If you believe you are being billed for a service you did not receive, call us and we will investigate immediately.

INTEREST:  We do not calculate nor charge interest on outstanding payments.  Ohio's Prompt Pay law requires some insurers to pay interest automatically if they do not pay within the law's timeframes.  Federal law requires Medicare to pay interest automatically on certain delayed payments.

BILLING AND PAYMENTS:  We will bill your insurance(s) at no charge.  Unless there is a long delay, we will not bill you for your co-payment or deductible until your insurance has decided your benefits.

You may pay us using the "Pay My Bill" tab on this website, by mail, by phone using a credit card (call our Customer Service Lines) or by visiting the Cashier at UH Elyria Medical Center located in the front lobby.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE WITH YOUR BILL:  University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center has a strong commitment to serving our community.  We provide services for all who are in need regardless of their ability to pay.

Free care is available to families whose income is less than the Federal Income Guideline, which is updated each year.  For example, the guideline for 2009 is $21,660 for a family of one and $3,740 added for each additional family member.  Discounts can be applied when a family's income is higher than that, but less than $32,490 for a family of one.  Please call to see if you qualify for discounts or free care.

Payment Arrangements:  Understanding that even fortunate people cannot always pay their healthcare bills immediately, it is our goal to arrive at mutually agreeable payment arrangements which take into consideration a family's income and expenses.  If paying your bill in full would create a hardship for your household, we will set up affordable payments.  No interest or set-up fees are charged.

COLLECTION AGENCIES:  We value our patients and customers.  Balances are sent to collection agencies as a last resort.  We prefer to arrive at payment arrangements that recognize the patient's financial ability as well as the hospital's need to be paid for services provided.
OTHER BILLS:  You may receive bills from physicians who helped with your care while you were a patient.  These professionals are not employed by the hospital and bill separately for their services.  Should you have questions about their charges, contact them directly.  To contact a physician not listed here, please refer to the phone number on their bill.
