Welcome to NW Primary Care!
Northwest Primary Care is dedicated to Family Medicine and Internal Medicine. Our training, interests and enthusiasm emphasize the total care of the family, including general medicine, obstetrics, gynecology, pediatrics and limited surgery.
Changes To Medicare Policy
Beginning January 1, 2015, Northwest Primary Care will no longer be able to accept patients with NEW Original Medicare coverage. Original Medicare for many years has reimbursed medical clinics below the cost to provide service and we want to ensure that our medical group is able to continue offering quality and timely care to our patients. We regret the need to make this change, but are no longer able to sustain this effort.
It is important to know the following:
- Established patients with current Original Medicare coverage will continue to be served without any change. If you are seen at Northwest Primary Care under Original Medicare prior to January 1st, we will continue to bill Original Medicare for your coverage.
- New or established patients who become eligible for Medicare coverage after January 1st, should consider one of the many Medicare Advantage plans that Northwest Primary Care participates in, including Providence Health Plan, United Healthcare, Healthnet of Oregon, Humana and Pacific Source.
- For Dual Eligible (Medicare + Medicaid) members, Northwest Primary Care participates in the Providence MA Healthplan for Dual Eligible members.
If you have questions about what option is best for you as a Medicare member, based on years of our current Medicare member’s experiences, we recommend that you call Willamette Valley Benefits to schedule an appointment. They will review your current prescriptions and hospital/specialist needs and then guide you in a direction that will provide the best coverage based on their findings. There is no cost to you. Willamette Valley Benefits can be reached at 503.659.5566.
Flu Shots available September 15, 2014
The Center of Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that everyone ages six months and older get their vaccine as soon as it is available. Northwest Primary Care is will be offering flu vaccine at all of our physician's clinics during the hours of 8:00AM to 5:00PM Monday through Friday starting September 15th. The Milwaukie clinic is also open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings till 8:00pm and also Saturdays from 8:00AM to 3:00PM for your convenience. No appointment is neccesary for receiving a flu vaccine. This year's flu vaccine also contains the H1N1, so only one vaccine is required.
Educational Medicare Classes
Open enrollment begins October 15 and will extend to December 7. This is the period of time when seniors can take time to examine their current Medicare plan and make changes according to their current medical needs.
