Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the financial impact it will have on our community, TRA Medical Imaging will off a 30 day “pause” on any medical debt owed to any of our managed facilities, including Diagnostic Imaging Northwest.
Diagnostic Imaging Northwest is committed to the treatment of all patients, regardless of ability to pay. That is why we offer financial assistance to those who are eligible, based on the current Federal Poverty Guidelines.
If you qualify, our program offers:
- Financial assistance for services performed at any Diagnostic Imaging Northwest or TRA Medical Imaging-managed facility
- Sliding-scale fees based on income eligibility
- Reasonable payment plans
- Financial Aid and Grant Matching
The Affordable Care Act went into effect on January 1, 2014, and all individuals are now required to have health insurance. This is a national effort created to ensure that everyone has access to health care, regardless of financial circumstances, even if they are sick or have a prior health issue.
If you are one of nearly 1 million uninsured in our state, you can shop for a plan that fits your health care needs and your budget. You may even qualify for low-cost or no-cost health insurance. To find, compare and enroll in the health plan that fits your needs and budget, visit Washington Healthplanfinder or call toll-free (855) WAFINDER (1-855-923-4633).
Before you apply for financial assistance with Diagnostic Imaging Northwest, we encourage you to first attempt to enroll in an insurance plan.
