Sammamish Diabetes and Lipid Clinic Goes to Direct Primary Care Payment Model

Starting in January 2015, Sammamish Diabetes and Lipid Clinic is switching to the Direct Primary Care Model of payment.  This means we will no longer participate with any insurance plans, nor will we create invoices that can be submitted to insurance.  All care will be provided for a monthly subscription fee. Our agreements with Medicare and Regence MedAdvantage terminate on April 1, our agreements with Aetna and Regence commercial plans terminate February 1, and our agreements with all other insurances terminate January 1, 2015.
