Payment for non-covered services
You can choose to get non-covered medical, dental, or mental health treatment and services. The provider’s office should tell you up-front if a service or treatment is not covered. They will tell you how much it costs. You must sign an Agreement to Pay form to say you will pay the bill for the non-covered service or treatment.
Tell the provider’s office and your caseworker right away if you have other insurance, such as Medicare or private insurance.
Bring the ID card for your other insurance to each appointment with your provider. Your provider must bill any other insurance before they can bill us for your services. We will only pay the provider after the other insurance has paid, except in some special cases. We will only pay for medical, dental, and mental health services covered by Oregon Health Plan.
