Hart EMC strives to make the process of paying your bill as convenient as possible. We accept cash, money orders, checks, electronic checks, electronic payments using your bank’s online Bill Pay, and most major credit and debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. In addition, we offer several methods of payment. We encourage our members to choose the option that best fits your needs.

By Phone

Our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system can take your payment using a Credit Card or E-Check.  To use the IVR you will need your account number(s) and the payment information in-hand. You can also check your balance with the IVR system.

July 1st, 2021. The move from taking you payments by phone with the help of one of our Members Service representatives to an IVR was necessary to increase the security of your payment information going forward.  Since Hart EMC takes payments by Payment Cards, that is Credit Cards and Debit Cards, we must follow the guidelines of the Payment Card Industry (PCI).  By following these guidelines, you can be assured that we are doing all that can be done to keep your sensitive information safe.


Do you ever worry that you may forget to make a payment?  Remove that stress today by setting up automatic monthly payments using a card or checking account through the customer portal.

How to set up Auto Pay:

  • Log in to the Member Portal
  • Choose the “Auto Pay” option from the payment menu
  • Enter your card or checking information
  • You can opt to pay on your due date or select another date, and your payment will process automatically each month
  • You will receive an email confirming your posted payment
