UK HealthCare files insurance claims as a courtesy to you.

We are a preferred provider in many managed care and health insurance plans. Please make sure we are on your insurance carrier's list of participating hospitals. If we are not, you may be financially responsible for your bill. If UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital, Kentucky Children's Hospital or UK Good Samaritan Hospital are not on your list of participating hospitals, it is still possible to access our services; you will need to get proper approval from your health plan. While UK HealthCare strives to ensure that this list is current and accurate, frequently there are changes in the plans participating with UK HealthCare. Inclusion on this list does not guarantee payment by the insurance company. See list of insurers

You may pay as you leave or we will send you a bill

Deductibles, private room differences and any patient balances due may be paid at discharge or we can send you a bill in the mail. We can also set up a payment plan for you based on set guidelines. Your bill can be settled with cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.
