Samaritan Health Starting System-Wide Point of Service Co-Payment Collection

Published on: August 24, 2023

Watertown, NY – Samaritan Health System is implementing a point of service co-payment collection in all its outpatient locations and services starting immediately. This means that Samaritan will collect co-payments for each outpatient service at the time of their visit. This practice is already in place by many other healthcare offices nationwide. The new procedure includes outpatient services at the main hospital, all offices and clinics, and lab and imaging service locations.

As these co-payment amounts vary based on individual insurance plans and the type of visit, you may need to contact your health insurance company to know how much to expect to pay at the time of your visit. Samaritan does not determine these amounts.

You will never be denied service for inability to pay, and our goal as always is to provide you with the best healthcare experience possible. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this transition.

Co-payments will be accepted in cash, check, debit or credit, and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)/Health Savings Accounts (HSA).
