Billing & Insurance

Understanding your healthcare costs can be a challenge. Costs depend on many factors, including 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 where you were treated. You may also receive a professional fee for the services your care provider(s) performed; and lab fees for tests, diagnostic processing and interpretation of your results. 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 you will need to pay out-of-pocket. It is your responsibility to provide UW Medicine staff with your insurance coverage information and to notify them if your coverage changes. Bring your insurance and photo ID cards with you to your appointment. Find out how to prepare for your appointment or hospital stay here.

If you need help paying your bill, whether or not you have insurance, you may qualify for Financial Assistance. Learn more about UW Medicine's financial assistance program.

Estimated average prices for medical services at UW Medicine can be found at the links below. These estimated prices include the facility portion of a patient bill and professional fees charged by physicians and other healthcare providers.

An estimate of charges is available upon request:

  • Harborview and UW Medical Center contact Financial Access Clearance Team 206.598.4388.
  • UW Neighborhood Clinics contact your clinic’s front desk or call the appointment line at 206.520.5000.

A guide to understanding your estimate:

  • The estimate is not a guarantee of what you will be charged.
  • Your charges will depend on the actual services you receive.
  • If your procedure is covered by insurance, the insurance company will decide the amount you are responsible for paying.
    • Your total final bill will probably be very different from the estimated price.
    • To understand your financial responsibility, it's important that you contact your insurance company once your provider has told you the procedures likely to be performed.

If you are unable to pay the patient responsibility portion of your bill, Financial Counselors are available to assist with applying for Financial Assistance, Medicaid and Washington Health Exchange. Call Financial Counseling to schedule an appointment at 206.744.3084.

Patient Discount Program

Uninsured? Need medical services not covered by your current insurance plan? You may qualify for a 30% discount on your bill!

Learn more about Discount Details

Haga clic aquí para ver español

UW Medicine is offering self-pay discounts to patients and guarantors who are uninsured or are receiving services not covered by their current insurance plan. Discounts are offered and applied in our billing system for service dates starting July 1, 2020.

This program is available for services at Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center – Montlake, UW Medical Center – Northwest, UW Physicians and the Neighborhood Clinics. UW Medicine recognizes the financial impact healthcare costs can have when you are uninsured or insured with a non-covered service. The discount program highlights our commitment to patients and families when seeking care within UW Medicine.

DISCOUNT STEPS

Follow these steps to make sure you get the best possible savings with our prepay and uninsured discounts. This will allow you to receive both discounts. Be sure to begin the process before you come in for your appointment or procedure.

  • Schedule your appointment or procedure.  
  • Contact your provider for the information you will need to request an estimate.  
  • At least seven days (preferred) before your service, call the Financial Access Clearance Team (FACT) at 206.598.4388 to get an estimate by email or mail. For UW Neighborhood Clinic estimates, please ask at the clinic’s front desk or call the appointment line at 206.520.5000. Estimates for patient care may be higher or lower than the actual cost, depending on the patient’s specific needs.
    • If the actual patient balance is less than the original estimate, the patient or guarantor will receive a refund for any overage that was paid after the discount was applied.
    • If the actual patient balance is more than the original estimate, the patient or guarantor will be billed for the difference. The prepay discount will be applied to the additional charges.
  • You have two convenient payment options to pay prior to your service. Your discount will be applied when making your full payment based on the estimate.
    • Pay in person at the location where you are getting treatment. Bring a copy of your estimate.
    • Pay by phone based on the location where you are getting treatment. The Cashier office can look up your estimate within our system.

Below is a list of health insurance plans and government programs in which UW Medicine participates. Important: Please contact your insurance company to be sure that your care at UW Medicine will be covered. UW Medicine does not participate in every plan that each insurance company offers. Your benefit plan may have specific networks for mental health, vision, or transplant services that do not include UW Medicine. In those cases, UW Medicine would be considered "out-of-network," and your care here would not be covered.
