When you are responsible for portions of your bill such as insurance co-payments and deductibles or for balances remaining after financial assistance approval, we can work with you on payment arrangements. If these payments are not made and you do not contact us, we may use the services of a third-party agency to follow up with you on collection of the payment. Understand what this could mean for you and download the Collection Policy here.

Information About Your Hospital Charges
The public may view a printed copy of Memorial Hospital's charge master at the Patient Access and Financial Services Department, located at 4500 Memorial Drive, Belleville, Illinois, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. At Memorial Hospital East, patients can obtain this information at the Cashier's Office, located on the first floor.
Recognizing that the hospital charge master is a lengthy and complex document, a designated representative from Patient Access and Financial Services will be available during these hours to assist the public. Hospital charges are the amounts before any discounts.
Patients interested in determining their financial responsibility can contact their health insurance plan for information on out-of-pocket costs for services as well as the Memorial Hospital Patient Access and Financial Services Department at (618) 257-5510 for specific price estimates and assistance. This amount is typically less than hospital charges due to discounts based on health insurance, financial assistance, prompt pay, and uninsured discounts.
