Patient Bills

High quality patient care and service

The University of Kansas Hospital is committed to providing the best possible care and service every day. To better serve you, our business office is transitioning patients to a new, easier to understand billing statement. The new bill provides a single statement including all services provided by the hospital, as well as most of its physicians.

In the past, patients received separate bills for hospital services and physician services. Now, both will appear on the same bill.

Our goal is to make it easier for patients to see and understand all charges related to each episode of care.

The single statement may include charges from:

  • The University of Kansas Hospital
  • The University of Kansas Cancer Center and community cancer program locations
  • Mid-America Cardiology, Inc.
  • MidAmerica Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons
  • Jayhawk Primary Care and Jayhawk Urgent Care

Important: Patients will continue to receive a separate statement for any services provided by the University of Kansas Physicians, Inc.
