Paying for Non-Emergency Services

Henry Ford Health System provides care, no matter your ability to pay, for true medical emergencies. 

For all non emergency services, you are responsible to pay. After insurance covers its portion of the bill, any unpaid balances must be paid at the time of service. Examples include:

  • Deposits
  • Co-pays
  • Deductibles
  • Charges for services not covered by insurance

Please be sure you bring to your visit:

  • Photo ID
  • Health insurance card
  • Payment for your deposit, co-pay, deductible and any services that are not covered by your health insurance plan. Click here to learn more.
