Southern Oregon Cardiology accepts payment from most major insurance providers including Medicare plans. We encourage our patients to familiarize themselves with their insurance coverage. Many insurance providers require prior authorization for surgeries and other procedures, and some restrict the facilities in which those services can be provided, including laboratory and certain imaging studies. We have staff dedicated to working with patient’s insurance plans to ensure coverage of services that we recommend. However, your own understanding of your insurance plan’s requirements will help you plan for your coverage and avoid unanticipated, out-of-pocket expenses.
Our staff is committed to helping our patients understand their medical conditions as well as their treatments, and also their insurance coverage. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Business Office at 541-930-7222 option 3.
Cardiology patients have many different medical providers working together to supply your needed services. These include the primary physician, the cardiologist, the hospital or surgery center, and potentially an anesthesiologist and additional providers. In an effort to provide you with the tools you need to navigate the financial aspects of your surgery we have provided the billing contact phone numbers for Southern Oregon Cardiology and our key partners.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your healthcare will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
If you schedule a health care item or service at least 3 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility give you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after you ask.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picutre of your Good Faith Esimate and the bill.
