Fort HealthCare Business Services

The Business Services Department is designed to help patients who want to a make payment or have questions about insurance or other financial programs. Payments can be made at the hospital information desk from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week. If there are questions on balances, we ask that patients come to Business Services at 210 Milwaukee Avenue West. We have designed a private area where patients can meet with an account resolution specialist who specifically works on their accounts and specializes in the insurance plan of the patient. Patients can also stop and make payments at Business Services from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

What if I can't pay my bill?

Fort HealthCare is proud of our mission to improve the health and well-being of our community. We understand that concern over a hospital bill should never get in the way of a patient receiving good health care. While we expect patients to contribute to the cost of their care, we do take into account each individual’s ability to pay. Our goal is to work with you to arrange a manageable payment plan.
Fort HealthCare offers two financial aid options to patients who meet our income, asset an need criteria. These are:
Self Pay Discount 
Community Care / En Espanol 

The Self Pay Discount is a discount of up to 25 percent on your health care charges. Community Care is a partial or complete write-off of all outstanding charges.
