What is paperless billing?
For mySaintLuke’s users who are the guarantor* of an account, the default is now set to paperless billing statements. This means you’ll receive billing statements in your mySaintLuke’s patient portal and no longer by mail.
What if I prefer to receive paper statements?
Opting out of paperless billing and changing back to paper statements is simple. Within the Billing Summary, view in mySaintLuke’s, click on “cancel paperless billing” at the bottom of the screen.
How will I be notified I have a pending statement?
You will be notified according to your communication preferences as indicated in your mySaintLuke’s profile. You may update your email and text message preferences at any time by clicking on “Communication Preferences” within the mySaintLuke’s menu.
What happens if I overlook a statement in mySaintLuke's and miss a due date?
Saint Luke’s will contact patients for accounts with outstanding balances. Several attempts will be made to connect with you.
Will both hospital and physician bills be paperless?
Yes, both hospital and physician bills will now be paperless.
Will I receive any paper bills from Saint Luke’s?
There are certain services outside groups provide at Saint Luke’s facilities. You may continue to receive a paper bill for services provided by these outside groups.
Can someone assist me with accessing my paperless bill or opting out of paperless billing?
Yes, call our helpline at 844-446-5479.
My children and/or parents have accounts, but I am responsible for their bills. How is this handled?
If your child is under 18 and you are responsible for their account, you will receive the statement through mySaintLuke’s. Anyone 18 and older will receive billing statements in their patient portal, unless you are considered guarantor* or are the power of attorney for those accounts.
*Guarantor is the person responsible for paying the balance of an account.
Online Bill Pay
Which bills can I pay online?
You may pay bills related to services at any Saint Luke’s hospital, clinic, and home care services.
What forms of online payment do you take?
mySaintLuke’s accepts credit card payments. If you need to pay by check, please send the check to the address listed on the online statement.
Can I pay my child’s bill online?
Yes. If you’re the guarantor on your child’s insurance, you will see your child’s bills in your mySaintLuke’s account. You will not need to set up proxy access to see your child’s bills. You may also use the Guest Pay feature to make a payment without creating an account.
Is online bill pay secure?
Yes. We use the latest encryption technology to ensure the integrity and privacy of your information. As an added security precaution, we store all information on servers with firewalls that meet or exceed industry standards to prevent intruders from gaining access.
Although we make every reasonable effort to protect personal information and health-related information from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties, there’s always some risk involved in transmitting information online.
Who do I contact for questions?
Please call mySaintLuke’s Customer Service at 844-446-5479. We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

How do I update my personal information (home address, email) or change my password?

Updating your demographics in mySaintLuke’s will automatically update the information in your patient record.

Who can have a mySaintLuke’s account?
Any Saint Luke’s patient 18 and older can create a mySaintLuke’s account. Please see the proxy access section for information about creating accounts for minor children.
Proxy access is when a family member or caregiver can view a patient’s protected health information (PHI). Access must be authorized by the patient, and multiple people can be given access.
A proxy is not the same thing as a guarantor. Both a proxy and a guarantor can pay a patient’s bill, but only a proxy gets access to their medical information. Proxies must be 18 years of age or older.
Adult-to-child: 0 – 11 years old
Access to allergies, appointments, diagnostic tests, procedures, growth chart, immunizations, labs, medication list, prescription refills, message providers, problem list, billing information, and online payment
When the child turns 12, proxy access will automatically convert to teen proxy access and limited information will be available in the chart.
Adult-to-teen: 12 – 17 years old
Limited access to online records:
- Patient privacy laws limit what records can be made available to a proxy of a child ages 12 – 17. The child must set up their own mySaintLuke’s patient portal account and share information with their parent/guardian.
- Proxy can access allergies, appointment information for some providers, immunizations, message providers, billing information, and online payment
Requests for adult-to-child (patient is age 0 – 11) or adult-to-teen (patient is age 12 – 17) access can be completed via mySaintLuke’s, in a Saint Luke’s clinic, by calling 816-880-6036, or by completing the request form:
Adult-to-adult: 18 years and older
- Access to allergies, appointments, diagnostic tests, procedures, immunizations, labs, medication list, prescription refills, message providers, problem list
- Access to billing information and online payment
For adults with a mySaintLuke's account, proxy access can be requested and revoked.
For patients without a mySaintLuke's account, access can be granted in a Saint Luke's clinic, by calling 816-880-6039, or by completing the request form below.
Completed forms should be sent to Saint Luke’s Health Information Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Revoking proxy access
For adults with a mySaintLuke's account, proxy access can be revoked within the portal under the "proxy access" menu.
For patients without a mySaintLuke's account, submit a request in writing with:
- Your name, date of birth, address, and gender
- Name of whom you wish to revoke proxy access to your mySaintLuke's patient portal
You can send this revocation via email at email@example.com or mail at:
