Tax Season Discount

Will you be receiving a tax refund this year? Use it toward your medical bills at ESH and receive a 15% discount!

ESH Tax Season Discount Details:
The ESH Tax Season Discount is a 15% reduction of the patient’s outstanding balance if the entire balance on the account is paid in full by May 31, 2021. It is offered to all individuals with an outstanding balance on accounts created for care delivered prior to December 31, 2020.

Discount will be applied to the current balance on the account after insurance has finalized. This discount will not be applied to, nor does it include any pre-payments required at time of services rendered.

Eligible Accounts:
Any private pay balance incurred prior to December 31, 2020 is eligible for the ESH Tax Season Discount. Private pay means the balance remaining after primary and secondary insurances have been paid. This also includes uninsured and non-covered charges. Accounts that have been placed with an external collection agency or CarePayment do not qualify for this discount.

How to Receive the Discount:
Individuals that qualify for this discount will have a statement or letter mailed to the address we have on file. To take advantage of the Tax Season Discount, call the ESH Revenue Cycle Department at 816-630-6081 between 8:00am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday.

How to Obtain Eligible Balance:
If you have questions about the amount eligible for the discount, please contact the ESH Revenue Cycle Department at 816-630-6081. We will be glad to answer any questions and provide you with details regarding your eligible balance.
