At Island Health, we aim to answer your billing and insurance questions with transparency and accuracy. Our Patient Accounts team is available to work one-on-one with patients to coordinate financial agreements before, during and after any procedure. You have the convenient and secure option of paying your account balance online using our online bill-pay system, 24/7.
BILLS FROM OTHER PROVIDERS
Many physicians, ambulance companies and labs that provide care or services at Island Health are separate businesses with their own billing and accounting procedures, which is why you may receive a bill from other providers or groups.
YOUR RIGHTS AND PROTECTIONS AGAINST SURPRISE BILLING
When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.
