Insurance and Billing

Medical Insurance and Gumshoe Health:

Providers at Gumshoe Health are credentialed with most insurance companies including Regence, Premera, First Choice, United, and Lifewise. PIP and L & I claims are also accepted. Different types of providers and/or individual providers may or may not be covered by the same companies other providers are credentialed with so please feel free to call and verify before booking. When booking online, selecting your insurance company option for treatment will only show providers who are credentialed with that insurance company.

 

For appointments with naturopathic physicians: After you’ve scheduled your appointment through either our online booking system or by phone, our Electronic Health Record system Athena Health, will perform a courtesy double check of your insurance eligibility. This is in order to reduce the possibility of any unexpected bills due to insurance rejection. It is important to note that this is not a confirmation of benefits and that you should always be aware of what your insurance plan will cover and what your deductible, co-pay, and/or co-insurance may be. It is also vital that you track what benefits you have already used throughout the year, as different insurance companies may lump certain services together and individual organizations are not notified of what may have been billed on your behalf by other organizations.

We cannot stress enough that you be aware of what your own benefits are as even a check by the clinic may not get an accurate picture of what is covered for you.

 

For appointments with massage therapists, counselors, physical therapists, and acupuncturists: During your first appointment, our office manager will call and double check your benefits for you. This is in order to reduce the possibility of any unexpected bills due to insurance rejection. It is important to note that this is not a confirmation and that you should always be aware of what your insurance plan will cover and what your deductible, co-pay, and/or co-insurance may be. It is also vital that you track what benefits you have already used throughout the year, as different insurance companies may lump certain services together and individual organizations are not notified of what may have been billed on your behalf by other organizations.

Certain insurance companies and plans may require pre-authorizations that can catch patients by surprise when they find out that their insurance will not cover something that is stated as a benefit. Again, it is important that you are aware of what your coverage is.
