Ochsner recently transitioned to a new statement vendor. If you have received an older statement, we apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience as we resume our paper statement process. Also, if you would like to move to paperless billing, learn about text and email statements/reminders below on this webpage.

Paperless billing

At Ochsner, we choose to offer paperless billing because it's more secure, timely, convenient and eco-friendly. 

Don't forget to update your email to receive MyOchsner notifications about your bill.
