Billing & Insurance

Our Bills Have Gone Paperless

Notice to Kaiser Permanente Patients

Effective September 16, 2021, Kaiser Permanente will change its agreement with Pediatrix Medical Group (Mednax Services, Inc.), the physician group that provides neonatology and pediatric intensivist hospital-based services at Overlake’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This means Pediatrix will be out of network for Kaiser patients, and neonatology and pediatric intensivist hospital-based services will be billed at out-of-network rates.

However, Washington state’s Balance Billing Protection Act prevents patients from getting a surprise medical bill when they receive emergency care from any hospital or if they have a scheduled procedure at an in-network facility and receive care from an out-of-network provider. Please read the Standard Consumer Notice of Surprise Billing Rights for details.

If you have any questions, please call the phone number on your Kaiser Permanente membership card. For questions about billing, please contact Pediatrix at (206) 526-2600 or visit mednax.com.

Frequently Asked Questions – Patients

What does it mean when you say transitioning to paperless statements?
For Overlake MyChart users who are the guarantor* of an account(s), the default will now be set to paperless billing statements. This means that billing statements will be sent via MyChart and no longer through standard USPS mail. Patients who prefer to receive paper statements can easily log in to MyChart and return the default to paper statements.

* Guarantor is the person or entity responsible for paying the balance of an account.

What if I want to continue receiving paper statements?
Resuming paper statements is easy. You will need to opt out of paperless statements, which can be done via the MyChart mobile app or the MyChart website. View the section above titled "Opting Out of Paperless Billing" for opting out of paperless statements.

What happens if I don’t realize I have a statement ready in MyChart and miss the due date?
At 120 days past due, Overlake has procedures in place to reach out via phone or standard mail for accounts with outstanding balances. You will also receive multiple emails to ensure you have seen your outstanding amount.

What if I try paperless statements and don’t like it? Can I return to paper statements?
Yes, you can opt out of receiving paperless statements at any time. View the section above titled "Opting Out of Paperless Billing" for opting out of paperless statements.

I have both hospital and physician bills. Will both be transitioned to paperless statements/billing?
Yes, hospital and physician bills will now be paperless for those who are the guarantor of a MyChart account.

I am still receiving paper bills from Overlake services such as radiology, hospitalists, lab or emergency room physicians. I thought all bills would be paperless?
There are specific departments that Overlake contracts with outside groups to provide services, including but not limited to emergency room and radiology physicians. For any of these providers that are outside of Overlake, you will continue to receive paper statements.
