Please be aware that each time you receive services from Deaconess Health System a separate account is created. It is possible to have several accounts open at the same time. Insurance companies listed on the front of your statement were billed as a service to you.
The actual amount due will be determined by your insurance company. If your service was not billed to an insurance company and you have insurance, please contact customer service at 812-450-6815
so that we can update your account.
We expect payment from you for the amount shown in the “Pay This Amount” box on the front of your statement. Payment is expected within fifteen (15) days of the statement date.
If your account is not paid after appearing on your first statement, the account will appear as a balance forward on the next statement you receive. Accounts not paid within 45 days and two statements are outsourced to Complete Billing Services.
If you are unable to pay the amount shown, please contact our customer service department by calling 812-450-6815
between the hours of 8 AM and 4:15 PM Monday through Friday to discuss payment arrangements or financial assistance. We are closed on National Holidays and the day after Thanksgiving.
