Health Insurance Available
Because of the Affordable Care Act, everyone has more choices for getting health insurance coverage. Depending on your income, you may be able to get health coverage for you and your whole family at no cost or low cost through the Washington Health Benefit Exchange. For most people, it will also be a very simple, very fast process to enroll in coverage.
The health insurance offered through the Exchange is required by law to cover doctor and emergency room visits, prescriptions, maternity care, and preventive care like cancer screenings and immunizations. It is comprehensive, employer-like coverage available to everyone. In addition, no one will be denied coverage because they are sick or have a pre-existing condition.
HOW: You can sign up for health insurance online: www.wahealthplanfinder.org; or, contact the call center at 1-855-WAFINDER (1-855-923-4633) or TTY/TTD 1-855-627-9604

Insurance Billing Information
The hospital will gladly bill your insurance company for your hospitalization when the proper information is given and benefits are assigned. Follow-up with the insurance company will be made to assure timely payment for insurance portions.
Your hospitalization coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company. While we will bill your insurance carrier as a service to you, you are ultimately responsible for your account with us. Any portion of charges not covered by your insurance company will be due at the time those charges are identified, with the exception of elective cosmetic procedures, which must be paid prior to the procedure.
The hospital will gladly bill your insurance company when the proper information is given and benefits are assigned. You are responsible for acquiring proper referral information from your primary care provider and/or your insurance company prior to your scheduled appointment. Your physician may fax the referral directly to our financial counseling office at 425-688-5969 or you may bring it with you on the date of service.
In all cases, please review your medical benefits information provided by your employer, in particular, any requirements related to co-payments, co-insurance, deductibles, non-covered services, referrals and authorizations.
No man, woman or child should ever go without healthcare simply because they are unable to pay for it. Thanks in part to our generous and compassionate donors, over the last three years Overlake provided over $16 million in charity care.
