As a courtesy we have medical billers who bill third parties. Medicare has us bill them directly. For patients other than Medicare we expect down payments at time of service. Balances remain the responsibility of patients and after 60 days all balances are transferred to the patient. Prompt pay discounts are limited to 60 days. Out of network coverage for our services is often available but needs to be pre-arranged. We do not have agreements with any Washington State sponsored programs including Medicaid and L&I.
