Good Samaritan to Offer Online Bill Pay Through MyChart and New Financing Option for Patients

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, happier community.”

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.
