Insurance & Billing

Are you in need of affordable healthcare?

Pekin Hospital is offering FREE assistance with enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace. The Health Insurance Marketplace is a new way to find coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. Whether you’re uninsured, or just want to explore your choices, the Marketplace will help find coverage
that’s right for you.

Our Federal and State-certified navigators can help you:

  • Understand the Marketplace’s insurance options
  • Determine coverage differences (bronze, silver, gold, or platinum plans)
  • Determine whether you are eligible for Child Health Plus or Medicaid
  • Help you select a plan that best meets your needs and budget
  • Determine your eligibility for financial assistance to help pay for insurance
  • Complete and submit your application
Call us toll-free at 1-855-601-3839
Pekin Hospital’s Navigator program is the official, Federal and State-certified agency serving residents in central Illinois.

 

After your discharge from the hospital, you will receive a billing statement. You might later receive a revised bill due to delayed charges on your account. In most cases, your hospital bill does not include any professional services rendered by your personal physician or consulting physicians. You may receive a separate bill from your physician or consulting physician for their services. As a service to you, Pekin Hospital will bill your insurance company. Please be sure to provide us with your current insurance information. Any balance not covered by your insurance plan will be your responsibility. Your insurance carrier may require pre-admission certification prior to your admission to Pekin Hospital. Please check the terms of your insurance policy or contact your employer regarding this requirement for healthcare benefit coverage.

We offer a free service to help all patients understand billing issues, even if the bill did not come from Pekin Hospital. This service is especially helpful to our senior customers with Medicare.
