Payments & Insurance

Dr. Heithaus is in-network for Premera, Regence, Providence and LifeWise insurances.

Patients are responsible for providing their most current insurance on file. Photos of the Insurance card front and back can be uploaded to the PATIENT PORTAL under the “Documents” tab. Include Prescription Benefits card photos when applicable.

Patients are responsible for copays, coinsurance or for maximum billable amount if you have an unmet deductible. Call your insurance provider to inquire about details of your coverage and estimate out-of-pocket expenses.
