Most timely submission of invoices – other submission methods involve mail and processing times

Visibility to invoice status – confirmation that your invoice has been successfully submitted for matching (PO invoices) or approvals (non PO invoices).

Cost savings – on printing and postage fees

Should invoices be submitted to both the Supplier Portal and email?

  • Invoices should only be submitted via one channel:  Supplier Portal, email, or PO Box.

I have traditionally sent invoices directly to my contact at the facility.  What should I do now?

  • For the most timely submission and visibility of your invoices, please submit via the Supplier Portal or email. Feel free to copy your contact at the facility so that they have the information also. 

I have submitted my invoice.  When should I expect payment?

  • Payment is distributed based on the invoice date and your payment terms. Please keep in mind invoices are not available for payment until a three way match is achieved (for PO invoices) or it has been approved by a CHRISTUS Health associate with the appropriate approval authority.

How can my organization get paid more quickly?

  • There are various ways that your organization can help expedite the payment process:
    • For PO related invoices, ensure that your invoice agrees with the Purchase Order. If not, contact the Buyer immediately for discrepancy resolution.
    • For non-PO related invoices, ensure that your invoices note the Location number (5 digits) and Department number (4 digits). This will ensure the invoice is routed to the correct approver.
    • Review your payment type and consider an electronic payment method that eliminates postage time.

Our organization does not wish to utilize the iPayables Supplier Portal.  Where should we submit our invoices?

  • Invoices may be emailed to [email protected]. Ensure each PDF represents only one invoice and does not exceed 5MB in size OR
  • Invoices may be mailed to the following address:

CHRISTUS Health [Facility Name] Location # (5 digits) Department # (4 digits)*
PO Box 3065
Orem, UT 84059

*Location and department numbers assist in the approval workflow of your invoice.  The CHRISTUS Health associate placing the order can provide this information.
