At Cancer Care Northwest, we know that cancer treatment can be an unexpected expense that can become a financial burden for you and your loved ones. Cancer Care Northwest does accept most insurance plans. However, should you find yourself uninsured or out-of-network, our Patient Advocates can help you apply for available insurance options, access community and medical resources, as well as walk you through your out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Effective January 1, 2022, the federal No Surprises Act is designed to protect patients from surprise bills (also known as balance billing) for emergency services at out-of-network facilities or for out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, holding them liable only for in-network cost-sharing amounts. The federal No Surprises Act also enables uninsured patients to receive a Good Faith Estimate of the cost of care.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. Important Facts about your rights under the “Good Faith Estimate” provision:
Our Patient Advocates are available Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, to assist you with your Good Faith estimate questions. Call us at (509) 228-1000 and ask to speak with a CCNW Patient Advocate. Thank you.
