Frequently asked questions

See below for answers to common questions related to billing at LCMC Health.

How do I access my account in your billing system?

To securely view and pay your bills online, visit and enter your Bill ID and date of birth. If you don’t know your Bill ID, click “Find Your Account” and follow the instructions for next steps. Additionally, if you received electronic bill notifications via text message and/or email, click on the link in the message to directly access your account.

Where can I find my Bill ID?

Your Bill ID is a 12-digit number that can be found at the upper right hand corner of your monthly paper statement as well as at the top of electronic bill notifications that you may have received via email.

I do not see a recent visit reflected in the billing system; when will my bill be ready?

Sometimes there is a slight delay between the time of your visit and when the bill is ready to view. We will promptly alert you when your bill is ready via monthly paper statement, text message and/or email, depending on your notification preferences.

How do I pay my bill?

LCMC Health gives you several ways to pay bills, including:

  • Visiting, retrieving your account and following the payment instructions.
  • Clicking the link displayed in text message and/or email notifications and following the payment instructions.
  • Scanning the QR code printed on your monthly paper statement with your mobile device camera and following the payment instructions.

How do you keep my personal and payment information safe?

It’s our top priority to protect the security of your personal and financial information. Your online payment instructions are sent over a secure internet connection with industry standard encryption (SSL) and electronic payments are sent through a payment processor with guaranteed protection against unauthorized transactions. LCMC Health and agents acting on our behalf will never share your personal information with anybody else.

To help those patients in financial need, we offer financial assistance, as we recognize that some of our patients may not have health insurance or may not be able to pay unexpected medical bills. However, all people still need and deserve quality healthcare, and our staff believes anyone should be able to get the care they need, regardless of their ability to pay.

This Financial Assistance policy applies to hospital charges only and does not apply to any physician services such as anesthesiologists, pathology, radiology, emergency room services or discounted clinic co-pays. This Financial Assistance Policy only applies to medically necessary procedures.

Cost of care

We are committed to helping patients understand and prepare for the cost of their care. As is required by federal regulations, we provide a list of standard charges for services provided at our facilities; however, the charges are accurate as of the date they are posted, but are subject to change. We understand that these factors can make it difficult to predict your cost of care, so we encourage you to call our Financial Assistance Department at 504.962.7000. for a personalized estimate.
