Billing & Insurance

Understanding your healthcare costs can be a challenge. Costs depend on many factors such as your insurance, where you received care and the types of services you received.

Types of bills you may receive as part of your service include a facility fee or hospital bill for the emergency, specialty or ancillary services provided at the location of your visit; a professional fee for services performed by the care provider(s); and lab test fees for diagnostic processing and interpretation services. Find the full list of UW Medicine locations here.

Insurance coverage varies among individual insurers and policies. Please call your insurance company before your visit to understand what they will pay, which providers and hospitals are in-network and what your out-of-pocket responsibility will be. It is your responsibility to provide UW Medicine staff with your insurance coverage information, and to notify them if you experience a change in your insurance coverage. Bring your insurance and photo ID cards with you to your appointment. Find out how to prepare for your appointment here.

Common resources:


These estimated average prices include the facility portion of a patient bill and professional fees charged by physicians and other healthcare providers.

If your procedure is covered by insurance benefits, the insurance company will decide the amount you are responsible for paying. Your total final bill will likely be very different from the estimated price. In order to understand your financial responsibility, it’s important that you contact your insurance company once your provider has identified the procedures likely to be performed.

If you do not have insurance coverage or are unable to pay the patient responsibility portion of your bill, and you meet certain income criteria, you may qualify for financial assistance. Our staff can also help you apply for public health insurance programs such as Medicaid or Washington State Health Insurance.

* Any estimates provided are not exact. We cannot know in advance the type and amount of care you and your provider will decide is needed. Your charges will depend on the actual services you receive.


Below is a listing of health insurance plans and government programs in which UW Medicine participates. UW Medicine may not be included in every plan that each insurance company offers, however, so please contact your health insurance company to verify that your care at UW Medicine will be covered. Under your benefit plan, you may need to use a specific network for mental health, vision or transplant services that UW Medicine may not be contracted for and considered as out-of-network.
