Welcome to Harvard!

What’s new on Harvard?

 

Evergreen’s Walk-In Well Child program is expanding to include our Harvard clinic! We are available Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm for walk-in preventative visits!

 

We are happy to announce that the Harvard Campus is now certified by the Oregon Vaccines for Children Program, so we may provide vaccines at little to no cost for every pediatric patient regardless of insurance status.

 

Vaccine staff from all locations are working diligently

to ensure that kiddos are getting their immunizations

in a timely manner as well as catch up from any

missed opportunities that were caused by COVID 19.

 

Pediatric wellness is important and shouldn’t be

forgotten or postponed due to COVID 19. If anything,

preventative visits are more important during this

time. Please make sure to get your child’s wellness

exam scheduled promptly to avoid missing any

developmental benchmarks and/or immunizations.

 

Take advantage of the summer and come in for your well child visit, sports physicals, and/or vaccines prior to school registration to save time when school starts again!

Billing Tips

Helpful tips from Evergreen’s Billing department

 

Dear Evergreen Family Medicine Patients, we are so happy to be able to reach out and communicate on how we can work together to make sure that we are not only providing great care but excellent service with your billing.  Below are helpful tips that we hope will help accomplish this.

Call or go online with your insurance and ask the following:

  1. Is my provider in network or out of network? This can change how the insurance pays on your claim.

  2. Does my insurance require me to choose a PCP (Primary Care Physician)?

  3. Do you have a Co-pay? How much?  This is usually a fixed amount you pay whenever you receive certain health care services or get prescription drugs. Co-pays may apply before and after you hit your deductible. A co-pay is different from coinsurance, which only applies after reaching your deductible and is the percentage of your final bill that you pay.

  4. What is your deductible? This is the amount you pay for covered health care services before your insurance plan starts to pay.

  5. What services are considered preventative care? This is the care you receive to prevent illnesses or diseases.  These services are usually covered for free and include such things as screening and immunizations. 

  6. Do you have a primary and a secondary insurance? Secondary Insurance is a health insurance plan that covers you in addition to your primary insurance plan. Typically, secondary insurance is billed when your primary insurance plan is exhausted and may help cover additional health care costs. For example, if you already have insurance through your employer and choose to enroll with your spouse’s health insurance plan (if allowed), that coverage would become your secondary insurance. It is so important to provide a copy of the insurance cards and clearly communicate which is primary and which is secondary. Make sure that you instruct that card to be applied to all family members under that plan.
