Leading the way to a healthier Shawnee County.

Billing Office


The Billing Office processes billing for all of the Shawnee County Health Department (SCHD) programs to the following insurance companies:

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (excluding Value Blue)
  • Century
  • Coventry
  • Medicaid/KanCare (including Amerigroup, Sunflower State Health Plan and UnitedHealthcare)
  • Medicare
  • United Health Care Commercial Insurance
  • United Health Care Medicare Advantage Plan

There are hundreds of insurance carriers and policies that exist: we do not know the coverage offered by each individual policy. You should contact your insurance company prior to receiving services to determine if they will be covered by your policy.

We are not responsible for notifying you in advance of services that are non-covered by your insurance policy: all non-covered services are the patient's responsibility.


Forms of payment accepted are American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, cash and check. Payments can be made free of charge over the phone at 785.251.5603 or in person at one of our locations listed on this page. Any questions you may have about a bill should be directed to the SCHD Billing Office.

Accounts must be paid in full or a $10 minimum payment must be received monthly, until a zero balance is obtained. Failure to make monthly payments will result in the account being sent to collections.


The SCHD Billing Office bills for the services listed below:

  • Communicable Diseases
  • Immunizations
  • Maternal/Child Health (some programs)
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases
