Important billing updates!
We recently made changes to our statements and billing portal. This may result in patients receiving more than one statement. This page includes information to help you understand this transition and how to quickly pay your bill.
We know that the billing process can sometimes be confusing. At St. Peter’s Health, we are committed to helping make the process of managing healthcare costs as simple and worry-free as possible.

How to pay your bill
On June 10, 2023, we upgraded our billing services to MyChart. St. Peter’s Health is proud to offer MyChart through a partnership with SCL Health, which is now a part of Intermountain Healthcare. All services received on or after June 10, 2023, will be billed through MyChart. Using MyChart, you’ll have the option to pay your bill online or through a paper statement. If you’d like to pay a bill for services received before June 10, 2023, you may still receive paper statements from the previous system and can still access the previous system to pay online.
Services performed before June 10, 2023, will be billed in the previous system.
Please note: There may be a period of time where you receive two statements from St. Peter’s. If you have an outstanding balance or payment plan set up with St. Peter’s for services performed before June 10, 2023, a paper statement may be generated for you from our previous system. If you have received services from St. Peter’s after June 10, 2023, a paper statement may be generated for you from our new system. If you have an active Patient Portal account, Patient Portal is available for a limited time to view and pay bills for services performed before June 10, 2023.
To help our patients with this transition, we are offering a 25% discount if you pay your entire balance in the previous system for services received before June 10, 2023. Exclusions may apply.
Services performed on or after June 10, 2023 will be billed from our new system.
Please note: You’ll notice a new look to your paper statements and will be directed to a new service site if you chose to pay your bills online for services received on or after June 10, 2023. You will no longer be able to use Patient Portal to pay bills online for services received on or after June 10, 2023. Instead, St. Peter’s offers access to MyChart as an online bill-pay option. There’s also an option to “Pay as a Guest” in the MyChart billing system.
As always, if you have questions about billing, you can connect with our local patient billing expert team at 406-447-2783.

Cost estimation and responsibility
By working together, we can minimize misunderstandings, payment delays and billing costs.
To help make the billing process as easy as possible, we bill your insurance company directly. However, insurance benefits do not always cover the complete cost of care. If you are unsure of your coverage for a particular medical procedure or test, we recommend that you contact your insurance provider before scheduling the appointment. Please note, you are responsible for any charges not covered by your benefit plan.
To obtain an estimate for future services, please visit our Charges and Cost Estimator Tool page or our online price estimator tool that calculates detailed cost estimates on-demand, and have charge lists available for download. You can also request an estimate by completing this form or by calling our patient billing team at (406) 447-2783. Please keep in mind that estimates do not represent a guarantee of what will be charged. There are often many variables to each individual patient’s treatment and services, and costs may vary greatly depending upon many factors including but not limited to insurance coverage, type of treatment and resources consumed.
Once you receive your first statement, your account balance is due within 30 days. If you are unable to pay, please contact us as soon as possible to make payment arrangements.
Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills
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. Learn more about the No Surprises Act here.
