Payment Options

A woman paying her bill online with a credit card

Your payment options include:

  • Cash
  • Check/money order
  • Credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, and American Express)
  • Alternative payment arrangements
  • UI staff ID badge

Your charges for hospital and/or clinic services and professional fees/services from UI Hospitals and Clinics will be combined into one bill. You are responsible for paying your bill in full by the designated due date on the billing statement. If you have a question about your bill or are unable to pay the balance in full, please call Patient Financial Services at the phone number on the back of your statement. Delinquent Accounts - UI Hospitals and Clinics refers delinquent accounts to outside collection agencies for recovery when full payment has not been received after a prescribed number of written and verbal contacts with you or the responsible party.

If you live outside of Iowa and do not have domestic (U.S.-based) health insurance, you will be asked to pay for services before seeing a physician, unless it is a medical emergency.

Our financial counselors can help you identify potential payment assistance from federal, state, and local programs.
