For any procedure done at EvergreenHealth Surgery Center there will be two (2) separate charges to your insurance:
Please note you may have a co-insurance for both.
Our clinic participates in many but not all health plans. We will bill participating primary and secondary health plans, but please be aware that insurance coverage is not a guarantee of payment. We will contact your insurance to confirm coverage and benefits, but we cannot guarantee that your insurance will pay for our services. If your insurance does not pay, you will be responsible to pay your bill in a timely manner.
Most insurance companies require the patient to pay for a portion of their medical care. The nature and amount of your out-of-pocket expenses will be determined by your health plan when they process our claim. We do bill secondary insurance, so please inform us when scheduling if you have secondary insurance.
If you are paying for our services yourself, we ask that you contact our billing department to discuss payment for the procedure. PLEASE NOTE: there are 2 fees as noted above
We do bill patients PIP insurance. We also require the patient’s private insurance information at time of scheduling in the case that the PIP exhausts.
Our Clinic does not place liens or accept guarantees of payment out of legal settlements. There are no exceptions to this policy under any circumstance. Patients are responsible to make timely payments on their accounts.
Payment of any amount for which you are responsible is due within 30 days of the date of our bill. Any balance over 30 days will be considered past due and will accrue finance charges. If any portion of the account reaches 90 days past due, the entire balance of the account will be assigned to a collection agency for recovery.
If you have any questions about your insurance coverage, please feel free contact our office at 425.899.1210. We are happy to answer your questions.
Other plans may be accepted. Please call our office to confirm your plan is participating.
NOTE: Insurance pre-authorization is not a guarantee of payment. Each procedure is subject to your particular plan's individual provisions and exclusions.
