Paying For Your Visit

At Erie no-one is ever turned away because of their ability to pay. We accept patients who have insurance and patients who do not have insurance.

For Patients With Insurance

Erie Family Health accepts many different insurance cards. For example, we accept Medicare and we also accept most private insurance plans that are not HMOs. Patients with insurance may still be eligible for assistance with co-pays, deductibles, and spend-downs.

We accept many Medicaid plans. Which ones depend on:

  • The specific Erie site at which you receive service
  • Whether the patient is a child, adult or pregnant woman
  • And, if needed, the hospital you choose

If you are using Medicaid (the State of Illinois) for insurance, please visit the location page of the site where you will be receiving service. Scan down the page and click on the link to “Insurance We Accept.”

Payment is preferred at the time of service.

Please print and fill out the new patient intake form (below) prior to your visit, and bring it with you to your appointment:
