WHAT TO EXPECT and HOW TO NAVIGATE CARE
Thank you for choosing the North Portland Wellness Center. We offer outstanding care in a warm and comfortable environment. Our expert providers and highly skilled administrative staff are here to make your experience with us as smooth as possible.
Paying for Care
We accept motor vehicle/auto accident claims, worker comp claims and most major medical insurance companies. We also offer a prompt-pay discount for those paying for care without insurance and a Wellness Membership plan for patients looking for regular wellness treatments at a discounted rate.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, in-state checks with a valid ID or cash for co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles or prompt pay discount appointments. If you are considering using your insurance but you are unsure of your benefits, please take a look at our insurance link and learn how to contact your insurance company and what questions to ask.
