By law, we are required to tell you that the “undiscounted price” that we are required to report may, in the state’s words, “be higher or lower” than the amount an individual will actually pay for the health care services described on these lists. To translate this required statement, it means that if we are an in-network provider with your insurance, the price could be significantly lower than the price listed here. If we are not in network with your insurance, our price will be no higher than the price listed here. If you are able to make other arrangements to pay any difference, it may still be significantly discounted. Each individual’s circumstance will vary by their insurance and by the arrangements made with this office.

The following are insurances for which we are an in-network provider:

 

Aetna

Alaska Worker's Compensation

Blue Cross Blue Shield/Premera

Cigna

EBMS

Federals Worker's Compensation

First Health

 

Medicaid

Medicare

Meritain

Moda Health

Multiplan

Tricare

United Health Care

For all other insurances, we are not considered an in-network provider. But, we are willing to work with you to provide the best care for the best price possible.

As required by the law, you may request to be be provided with an estimate of the anticipated charges for your nonemergency care. Please do not hesitate to ask for this information. This estimate will only include our estimated fees; we cannot provide estimates for the cost of other facilities or providers (example: the cost of your hospital stay for surgery or the cost of an anesthesiologist’s services); these providers will need to be contacted directly in order to obtain an estimate of their costs. We will provide you with contact information so that you can obtain estimates from these individuals.
