Billing  

As a courtesy, I bill insurance for you. I am in-network with the insurances companies listed below in the section titled Insurance. If you plan to use your insurance, then please bring your insurance card to all appointments and notify me of any changes to your insurance status. Please  pay your copay at the time of the visit by cash or check ideally. Please be aware that there may be a balance that your insurance deems as your responsibility (such as a deductible or co-insurance) or for full payment of non-covered services.  Some insurance plans do not cover annual physical exams or certain vaccinations. Please take the time to understand your insurance coverage and what is covered.
 
Insurance
Since each insurance company now offers a large number of plans, I advise that you check directly with your insurance to see if I am In-Network for your specific plan that year. In-network: Aetna, Coventry/First Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Family Care OHP, First Choice, Moda (as a "specialist"), PacificSource , Providence PPO & EPO, Regence, and United. I may also bill other out-of-network plans for you.
Self Pay/ Out of Network/No Insurance
Office visits for patients not using insurance, 30% discount for same day cash/check payments: New patient initial visit 30 min- $129.50 60 min- $206 90 min $241.50 Returning patient visits 15 min - $70 30 min- $115.50 60 min - $220.50 90 min - $220.50 I will also bill your insurance even when I am not a contracted provider. You will remain responsible for any charges not covered by your insurance. I will bill you for these charges once your insurance has processed the claim. I will notify you via email if you have any outstanding charges. Payment of outstanding charges is due within 30 days of my email notification. If I have not received payment for outstanding balances by 30 days, a $15 fee will be added to your account, and will be added again for every 30 additional days the account remains unpaid in full. If you are suffering financial hardship, please contact me directly well in advance of the 30 day period, and we can negotiate a payment plan with waived late fees. A fee of $30 will be imposed for a bounced check.
Trading Services/ Self Pay
Alternatively, patients may trade skills such as gardening, produce, plant starts, handy person skills, housecleaning, massage, yoga/pilates or other instruction or donate handmade items to a gift basket. Nobody is turned away for lack of money. If you are without insurance, you can receive a 30% discount by paying with cash or check in full on the day of your appointment. Please call me if you have specific questions about my rates.

Misc.    

Waiting Room
The appointments are spaced far enough apart so that one visit is finished well before the next one, and you can walk into my office right on time. Please come in if you see my door is open.
Parking/Transport
The clinic is located at 1923 NE Broadway Suite 2 . It is a beige 3 story house on the North side of Broadway just East of the Rose painted building next door. The house is close to Trimet bus lines #8 ,#17 and #77 along Broadway going west and #70 and #77 along Wiedler going east. Car parking is available in a small lot NE of the house. Bike parking is on the sidewalk.
Refills
Please request refills during our office visit. If you run low or are out of your medicine then you are likely due for a follow up appointment. I will disregard pharmacies contacting me for refills. Instead please contact me personally if you need an emergency refill outside of an office visit. There will be a $15 charge for refills outside a visit.

E-mail
Please use email for non-urgent messages: appointment requests, normal lab results, or billing issues. Please note that email is not entirely secure. If your email address is through your employer, your employer may be able to read the messages. Likewise, there is a small possibility of interception of messages from outside parties (“hackers”). For these reasons, it is best NOT to transmit messages of a sensitive nature, such as mental health, substance abuse, or HIV status through standard email. With these guidelines in mind, please let me know if you’d like to communicate with me via email.
