The professional fees in our office are carefully examined and are customary for orthopaedic surgeons in our area. We make every attempt to keep your overall medical expenses to a minimum. It is expected that copays for office visits and X-rays will be paid at the time your service is rendered. This gives you a clear understanding of your bill and an opportunity to discuss any problems.
If you are having difficulty with your account, please do not hesitate to call or request a meeting with our billing department where a confidential discussion may help resolve your problem. For your convenience, payments for your office visits may be made by check or credit card. Please note, we are no longer accepting cash payments.
You will be asked to talk with our Financial Advocate Department prior to your surgical procedure to make certain that we have appropriate insurance information for your account. The Financial Advocate Department will provide you with an estimated out of pocket expense. Please note your patient out-of-pocket expense is due at the time of service.
Olympia Orthopaedic Associates does not bill 3rd party claims. In instances where there is an accident-related injury that may require legal action, we hold the person who has received our services responsible for the bill payment, regardless of any pending legal action.
For work-related injuries, we will need written authorization from your insurance carrier. If you have any questions regarding work-related conditions, please contact our office at 360.491.8439.
