Discount Details

Uninsured Discount

  • Patients or guarantors without insurance coverage: a 30% discount is applied to the full charge amount that appears on your estimate. If you are not able to pay prior to your visit, this discount will be applied to your billing statement post your service.  You can contact the hospital 206.598.1950 and/or provider 206.520.9300 if you are interested in setting up a payment plan. 
  • Discount cannot be applied to package pricing.

Uninsured Prepay Discount 

Insured Non-Covered Service Discount

  • Patients or guarantors with insurance may qualify for a 30% discount on services that are not covered by their plan.  Patient or guarantor must sign a notice of non-coverage within the check-in process prior to receiving the service. If you are not able to pay prior to your visit, this discount will be applied to your billing statement post your service.  You can contact the hospital 206.598.1950 and/or provider 206.520.9300 if you are interested in setting up a payment plan. 
  • All available insurance coverage must be obtained and/or utilized before discount will automatically be applied in the billing system based on the Self-Pay account status.
  • Discount cannot be applied to package pricing, deductibles, copay or coinsurance for noncovered services.

Insured Non-Covered Service Prepay Discount

  • Patients or guarantors with insurance may qualify for an additional 10% discount after the first 30% uninsured discount has been applied on services that are not covered by their insurance. Patient or guarantor must sign a notice of non-coverage prior to receiving the service. 
    • For a scheduled appointment: if payment is made in full before or on date of service.
    • For an urgent admission: if you make a $1500 deposit per night while you are in the hospital or when you are discharged, you may receive the 10% prepay discount. Charges often aren’t completed until 4-5 days post discharge, so a deposit of $1500 per each night in the hospital will be required with balance due within the first 14 days of the receipt of your first bill.
  • Discount cannot be applied to package pricing, deductibles, copay or coinsurance for noncovered services.

Financial Assistance or Hardship 

  • If a patient is eligible for UW Medicine’s Financial Assistance or Hardship program this will supersede the discount program. Financial Assistance is award at 100% whereas Hardship is awarded at varying percentages.
