The Doctors Clinic is still in-network with Regence.
The Harrison/Regence negotiations have created confusion for some patients of The Doctors Clinic, in part because physicians for The Doctors Clinic do provide services at Harrison facilities.
Dr. Randall Moeller, president of The Doctors Clinic, said the group sent voice messages to patients assuring them Regence insurance will still be accepted, regardless of the outcome of the Harrison negotiations.
The Doctors Clinic posted this explanation on its website:
The Doctors Clinic will still accept Regence Insurance plans after August 1, 2014. The contract dispute with Harrison Hospital does not affect in network coverage with The Doctors Clinic.
All services from The Doctors Clinic — Physician visits, urgent care treatment, lab work, and surgery in our Ambulatory Surgery Center will continue to be considered “in network” through Regence.
If you were to require surgery by a physician from The Doctors Clinic who performed the surgery at Harrison Hospital, only the hospital portion of the bill would not be covered “in network.”
