We want to make sure your clinic experience at OrthoWashington goes as smoothly as possible. To prepare for your clinic appointment, we encourage you to review and complete the following steps:
Step One - Insurance and Financial Arrangements
While we do our best to assist you any way we can, you are responsible for understanding your specific insurance coverage. Whether you have commercial insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, we recommend that you contact your carrier in advance to clarify your benefits, determine if the doctor and the facility are both covered “in network", and determine if any pre-certification is required. Click here to read our FINANCIAL PAYMENT POLICY.
We accept insurance from most major carriers. However, there are some we do not accept. CLICK HERE to view our list of APPROVED INSURANCE CARRIERS and contact your insurance carrier to verify your plan coverage.
We will confirm your insurance coverage and contact you via phone and mail prior to you treatment to clarify what will be your financial responsibility, if any. When you have any questions, we encourage you to call our billing office at (425) 284-0660 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
