Helping You Stay Focused On Your Care, Not Costs.

Proton therapy is covered by some private insurance plans, Medicare, and some state Medicaid programs. The Center provides each patient with a Financial Coordinator to help navigate insurance coverage, estimated costs associated with treatment, and assist in finding alternative financial solutions for individuals without insurance coverage.

Financial assistance/charity care is available to those who reside within Washington State, and who fall below certain income thresholds. Your Financial Coordinator can help you determine if you might qualify and assist with the completion of applications. The Financial Coordinator can also help you apply for public insurance programs such as Medicaid.

Other considerations to be aware of:

  • Pre-Authorization may be required by your insurance plan. Your Financial Coordinator will work with you through the process should one be required.
  • Private insurance coverage depends on the health insurance carrier and the benefits covered under a patient’s plan.
  • Before starting treatment, your Financial Coordinator will provide you with an estimated out of pocket cost for your treatment.

Our financial counselors will assist you in understanding your insurance coverage, coordinating insurance payments, and finding alternative means of financing. We do not want to see anyone forego treatment with protons because of financial issues, and our counselor will work closely with you and your insurance provider to ensure that you receive the treatment needed. To contact one of our Financial Coordinators, please call 1-855-528-7248.
