Good Samaritan’s MyChart patient portal now offers a new online payment feature for patients. MyChart is an online portal that gives patients
access to communicate with their physicians, view test results, request
prescription refills, and view upcoming appointments. Now, patients of
Good Samaritan Hospital and the Physician Network will be able to pay
their bill through their MyChart account.
Guest pay will be available for patients who do not have MyChart; however,
MyChart accounts are recommended because of the additional benefits. MyChart
users can simply log in into their account to pay their bill or visit
gshvin.org and click on “Pay My Bill”.
For those who struggle to pay their medical bills, Good Samaritan has also
implemented an alternative payment program that will enable patients and
families to manage their medical debts.
The program, brought to Good Samaritan by Commerce Bank and called Health
Services Financing (HSF®), features a line of credit to finance patients’
out-of-pocket expenses, and operates like a loan through affordable 0%
interest monthly payments. By offering HSF®, Good Samaritan aims to
alleviate the stress of medical bills for patients and provide considerable
benefit to the community.
“Good Samaritan’s launch of HSF® derives from our core
commitment to our patients,” said Rob McLin, President and CEO.
“This program helps provide them peace of mind when confronted with
medical expenses, creating a positive impact and ultimately a healthier,
The HSF® program is a unique solution during a time of great need,
when cost is a barrier to individuals seeking care and rising deductibles
and co-pays are commonplace. Patient out-of-pocket costs for visits –
whether planned or unplanned – are unaffordable for many people,
and Good Samaritan sought a creative way to provide more options for payment.
Patients and families are eligible for an HSF® Account regardless
of whether they have insurance. Further program attributes include fixed
terms; one manageable monthly payment; and the ability to fund multiple
services/charges on one account.
