Accepted Insurances

Listed below are those insurance payers and products with which Horizon Health (Paris Community Hospital, Paris Clinic, Chrisman Clinic, Oakland Clinic, and EZ Care) has direct participation agreements.

Horizon Health accepts Medicare and will file medical claims for all Medicare Advantage Plans. We participate with Health Alliance and Humana Medicare Advantage Plans. Patients enrolled in those plans are eligible for all services we provide, since we are contracted with these plans. We accept PPO advantage plans (other Medicare Advantage Plans), but may be subject to limited coverage for elective surgery and inpatient stays, which could result in greater out-of-pocket expense. It is best to contact your plan to verify coverage and contracted providers.

  • Blue Cross Medicaid

According to the Illinois Insurance Code, “When a person presents a benefits information card, a healthcare provider shall make a good faith effort to inform the person if the health care provider has a participation contract with the insurer, health maintenance organization, or other entity identified on the card.” Under the Fair Patient Billing Act, Horizon Health must provide written notice that:

  1. As a patient, you may receive separate bills for services provided by healthcare professionals affiliated with Horizon Health. Ask about insurance coverage for visiting specialists. Not all visiting providers follow the above insurance list or are eligible for financial assistance/uninsured discounts.
  2. Horizon Health will submit charges to all commercial carriers on your behalf. If your plan is not listed, we may be out-of-network, resulting in a higher out-of-pocket expense for you as determined by your insurance carrier. Furthermore, even if your insurance plan is listed, that is not a guarantee of in-network service.
  3. It is your responsibility to verify your insurance coverage before your visit. When verifying coverage be sure to ask your insurance carrier if your clinic provider and Paris Community Hospital are
    IN-NETWORK. If not, it may result in a greater financial responsibility to you. This applies to commercial plans only.
  4. You are STRONGLY encouraged to obtain information on out-of-pocket expenses by calling your health plan using the toll-free telephone number on your insurance identification card.
  5. Contact the Financial Assistance Coordinator to determine eligibility for the Illinois Uninsured Discount or our Financial Assistance program.
