Not sure whether you’re in-network?

Optum accepts most major health insurance plans. Before selecting a provider, please check with your insurance company to verify your eligibility and coverage to ensure the provider participates in your plan.

If you have insurance coverage from a company that is not listed above, the services are probably “out-of-network” and you will be responsible for a greater out-of-pocket expense.

For help selecting a plan that participates with Optum, please contact our patient assistance department at 1-888-859-9473.

 What if my insurance doesn’t cover my service?

If you are out-of-network or choosing to pay out of pocket, services are still available. Here’s what you need to know:  

  • You have the right to request a good faith estimate of expected charges prior to receiving services.
  • You will not be billed more than the out-of-pocket maximum limit established by your health plan. This includes the billing of all applicable deductibles, copay and coinsurance.
  • In compliance with the “No Surprise Act”, a patient is held harmless from the cost of unanticipated out-of-network bills.

Contact us if you have questions or need more information about participating plans, billing or the “No Surprise Act”.
