Navigating BJC HealthCare’s Online Bill Pay Portal

Dealing with medical bills is often cited as one of the most frustrating aspects of healthcare. Between confusing statements, unclear costs, and hassles of mailing payments, many patients dread the billing process. However, BJC HealthCare aims to simplify bill pay for their patients through an easy-to-use online portal.

As one of the largest nonprofit healthcare organizations in the Midwest, BJC HealthCare serves residents across Missouri and Illinois. The health system includes 15 hospitals and multiple outpatient locations For patients who receive care at BJC facilities, here’s an overview of how to utilize their online bill pay

Accessing the Bill Pay Portal

To start paying bills electronically, patients must first register for a MyBJC account. This can be done by going to and clicking on “Pay My Bill” at the top right. From there choose the option to log in or create a new account.

Registration only takes a few minutes. You’ll need to enter some basic personal information, create a username and password, and provide an email address. Once your MyBJC account is setup, you can immediately view bills and start making payments.

Connected Facilities

It’s important to note that BJC’s online bill pay is for their hospitals and employed physician clinics. Patients who see independent doctors or specialists at BJC locations may get separate bills from those providers.

The online portal is specifically for facility fees, testing/lab services, and BJC Medical Group physician charges. Patients should contact private physician offices directly about their bills.

Viewing Current Balances

Logging into your MyBJC account allows you to view open balances from any BJC hospital or clinic. Multiple bills will be conveniently summarized into one total owed amount.

You can also drill down to see details on each individual charge, like date of service, appoint type, and insurance adjustments. Having all your BJC bills in one place makes it easy to track what you owe.

Making Payments

Patients can pay their BJC bills directly on the portal by credit card, debit card, or eCheck. Major credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted.

For convenience, you can opt to store your card information for future transactions. The portal utilizes extensive security measures to protect all payment data.

In addition to online payments, patients can also mail in checks by accessing printable coupons on the portal. However, online payments post faster since there’s no mailing time.

Payment Plan Options

Some patients may need help managing large medical bills. That’s why BJC offers interest-free payment plans tailored to each person’s financial situation. Plans can spread payments over 6, 12, 18, or 24 months.

Patients can enroll in a payment plan and manage monthly payments completely online. You’ll be able to view your balance, terms, payment history, and receipts through your MyBJC account.

Receiving Statements and Receipts

You can also access PDF statements outlining all transactions, adjustments, pending insurance, and total balance due. Going paperless via online bill pay avoids statements getting lost in the mail.

Customer Support

Although the portal is user-friendly, patients can still contact billing support if they need assistance. Call center representatives are available at (314) 362-8400 or toll-free at (855) 362-8400.

BJC may also provide special discounts or promotions to patients who pay their bills electronically via the portal. These offers provide extra motivation to start managing bills online.

Convenient Mobile Access

Today’s consumers expect to be able to complete tasks from their smartphones or tablets with ease. BJC’s online bill pay portal is fully mobile responsive for added convenience.
