Bills From Group Health Medical Centers

Services provided by a Group Health care provider or at a Group Health facility (including Group Health pharmacies) are billed by our Patient Financial Services department. These bills are first submitted to your health coverage provider (your "health insurance company") or other payers of record for processing. If the service is covered by your plan, the bill will be paid by your coverage provider.

You will be billed for services at a Group Health facility if:

  • Your plan requires that you pay for part or all of the service (commonly called "patient responsibility" or your "cost shares"). The most common forms of patient responsibility are copays, coinsurance, and deductibles.
  • Part or none of the service is covered.
  • Your coverage had ended when you received the service.

For questions about these bills, contact Customer Service.

Bills From Contracted Providers

When you receive health care services from a non-Group Health provider, that provider might send you a bill. In most cases, you will be billed only for charges that are your "patient responsibility."

However, sometimes the contracted provider might send you a full bill instead of forwarding it to Group Health first. If you receive such a bill, send a copy to:
Group Health Claims Administration
P.O. Box 34585
Seattle, WA 98124-1585

In Eastern Washington, blood drawn at a Group Health facility is routinely sent to Pathology Associates Medical Laboratory (PAML) for processing. X-rays taken at these clinics are also read by Inland Imaging. If there are any patient balances for either of these services, you will receive a bill directly from PAML or Inland Imaging.

For questions about bills from non-Group Health providers, contact the provider who sent you the bill. If the provider's office is unable to assist you, contact our Customer Service.
