After you receive care in one of our hospitals or clinics, you may receive more than one bill for your care:
On Oct. 1, MultiCare will join thousands of health care organizations in a transformation of patient record keeping and billing practices. This new data system, known as ICD-10, was adopted by the World Health Organization in 1993 and is used in most countries around the world.
You have several options for paying your MultiCare bill:
If you have more than one outstanding bill with MultiCare, you may request to apply your payment to a specific “Visit” when making payments in person, over the phone or via MyChart.
If you have questions about how to read your bill, please visit our How to Read Your Statement guide.
You may review a list of the medical insurance plans MultiCare currently accepts on our Accepted Insurance Plans page.
It's always a good idea to double check with your insurance company for specific information about your plan, the coverage it provides and your choice of doctors, hospitals and other health care services before receiving care.
It's also important to note that some doctors and other providers not employed by MultiCare may not accept the same insurance plans that we accept. If you have questions about physician charges, please contact the physician's office directly, using the contact information included on any bills you receive from them.
If you do not have insurance to pay for your hospital care, you must make payment arrangements before you receive medical care.
At MultiCare, we're committed to serving all patients, including those who lack health insurance coverage and who cannot pay for all or part of the essential care they receive.
If you need medical care, but don’t think you can afford it, please visit our Financial Assistance page to learn how our financial assistance may be able to ease your financial burden.
You can now make payments online through MyChart, our secure patient records portal.
Financial assistance is available to eligible patients. Eligibility is based, among other factors, upon family income and number of family members in the household.
If you think you may be eligible for financial assistance, please call 253-459-8247.
