Our Billing Process

The billing process begins at time of registration. When you register, the Patient Registration Representative will verify your demographic information and ask for your current insurance card(s). We do this at every visit in order to ensure that we have the most accurate information for you. This helps us to process your hospital bill in the most efficient and timely manner possible.

If you provided insurance information at time of registration, we will bill your insurance shortly after your hospital services have been rendered. Proctor Hospital will actively pursue resolution to your insurance claim but, from time to time, your insurance company may require additional information from you to process the claim. If you receive a request for additional information, we respectfully ask you to respond to the request promptly in order to expedite the processing of your claim.

While your insurance company is processing your claim, you may receive statements from us letting you know the status of your account. If you have questions regarding the processing of your insurance claim, please contact your insurance company to determine status.

After your insurance company processes the claim, they will send you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB). The EOB shows the insurance company's payment to the hospital and the portion that is your responsibility. This statement is not a bill. If you provided us secondary insurance at time of registration, we will also bill the secondary insurance for you. Should you still have a balance due after all insurance is resolved, Proctor Hospital will send you a statement for the amount that you owe the hospital.

If you are unable to make payment in full for the amount that you owe, please contact our Patient Financial Services Representative at 309-691-1083 to make payment arrangements or discuss financial assistance.

Proctor Hospital accepts Mastercard, Visa, Discover, cash and personal checks.

Other Bills You May Receive

The bill you receive from Proctor Hospital is for hospital services only. You may receive separate professional fee bills from the emergency department physician, pathologist, radiologist, cardiologist or other physicians involved in your care. Physicians that provide care to you may or may not be participating providers in the same insurance plans or networks as the hospital, which may result in greater financial responsibility for you. Please contact the physician provider or your insurance company directly with your non hospital billing questions. For your convenience we provide you with some of the frequently used phone numbers:
