Here, at Peach N Skin Portland Healthcare, we realize that access to good health care can be difficult. Each year, patients seem to have fewer benefits and increasing out-of-pocket costs. There is a growing number of uninsured patients needing access to health care, therefore, we will make every effort to work with our patients by allowing them to use debit and credit cards for office visits and by giving discounts to prompt paying cash patients.
We charge flat rates to all uninsured cash paying patients at the time of visit. These fees include the doctor's office visit fee and almost all services performed in our clinic. Examples of these services include minor surgeries and procedures performed by the physician. These fees, however, will NOT include lab tests when they are needed, i.e... rapid strep or mono tests, etc.. Anything that we have to refer you out of the clinic for is NOT included in these fees, for example x-rays, MRI scan, CT scan, etc... Also, these fees do NOT cover additional lab charges if we have to send blood or other specimens to an outside lab to be tested. If you are insured we will contact your insurance company to check for your benefits.
Dr. Jaqueline Brockert is currently paneled with OHP open card, Pacific Source, HealthNet, United Healthcare, Aetna and Providence insurances but will soon be able to accept more insurance plans such as BC/BS. Please call or write an email to our office to see if we are covered under your insurance plan. If Dr. Jaqueline Brockert is not an in-network provider for your insurance plan, we may be able to bill your insurance as an out-of-network provider. Please check with your insurance company too about co-pays and deductibles. If you are not able to accept your insurance you do accept cash paying patients for a flat fee, please call us to check for prices and benefits.
Does your insurance company cover our services?
The best way to find out whether you are covered to see one of our providers is to have us do a benefit check for you.
Contracted Insurance Companies
Right now we are only contracted with OHP open card, Pacific Source, United Healthcare, Aetna, HealthNet and Providence insurances but will soon be able to accept more insurance plans such as BC/BS. Please check again in the next month because we will be contracting with several other insurance companies.
Deductibles are amounts you have to pay toward your visits with a healthcare provider before the insurance company will pay.
Pre-authorizations are most often used for complex imaging, procedures and some prescriptions.
Your insurance company may not necessarily pay for all prescriptions and only rarely pays for vitamins & supplements recommended by your healthcare provider. Contact your insurance company for details regarding your prescription coverage.
Health Savings Accounts
Health savings accounts can be used to pay for amounts your insurance company does not pay. Health savings accounts are made available by certain employers or can be set up by individuals privately with certain banks that provide a Health Saving Account service.
