RESOURCES + INSURANCE
We are an in-network provider with:
REGENCE BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD (and other plans in the BCBS network)
and MODA HEALTH.
We are also happy to bill other insurance as an out-of-network provider.
We have already successfully worked with
UNITED HEALTHCARE, PROVIDENCE, CIGNA,
PACIFICSOURCE, FIRST CHOICE, KAISER, and AETNA.
Please note that we are not able to bill Oregon Health Plan (OHP).
Ryan is available to help parents understand their coverage for therapy services, and he will have a conversation with each family before we begin treatment, so they know what to expect in terms of billing.
We plan to continue adding resources and information here, so check back in the future!
