Medical Insurance

As a patient service, I will bill most insurance companies for office services. We are unable to bill any Medicare, Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplemental plans that do not recognize ND as a doctor. I make no guarantees about insurance coverage. To avoid surprises, I recommend that you call your insurance company to confirm where your benefits stand for the date you are seen. Anything not covered by your insurance company is the patient’s responsibility and will be billed directly to the patient. It is the patient’s responsibility to be aware of their coverage, as well as any deductibles and maximums that may apply. I recommend that you call your insurance company prior to arriving and verify your benefits. Specifically, confirm that you have Naturopathic Coverage and that it covers Heidi Peterson, ND either in or out of network.

Insurance Network Coverage- Please use the Insurance Verification Form located here to verify if your policy is considered in-network or out of network prior to coming into the office. Although we cannot guarantee coverage by any insurance company, we are considered in-network with some policies under the following insurance companies... Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield OR,WA(and other states that allow ND), MODA (Connexus, Beacon, OHSU-PPO, OHSU Tuality and CCN- (NOT Synergy, OHSU-EPO or Affinity), Pacfic Source (BrightPath, Legacy Plus, Preferred PSN, Prime PSN, SmartHealth Tier 1/Smart Choice and Voyager-NOT Legacy Marketplace), Cigna and Aetna.

NEW FOR 2020 - Medicare MedAdvantage plans now offer some limited naturopathy coverage policies through Regence MedAdvantage, Pacific Source MedAdvantage and MODA MedAdvantage.  Please consult with an insurance advisor to find out more!

Laboratory Charges

Please note that if you have your blood drawn in-house for labs and choose to have it processed through your insurance company, there may be additional charges and fees determined by the lab company once the claim is processed. Some insurance plans have a deductible for lab coverage.  You are responsible for finding out your benefits.  We do offer a lower cost self-pay lab as an alternative option.
