United Healthcare

We know finding a doctor that’s right for you isn’t always easy. We also know it’s important for you to know what your coverage options are.

Swedish is in-network with most UHC plans, including:

  • United Healthcare PPO network
  • AARP Medicare Complete
  • UHC Community Plan Healthy Options/Washington Apple Health

Swedish is out-of-network with:

  • UHC Charter
  • UHC Cascade Select

Please note, patients assigned to an Independent Practice Association (IPA) may require a special authorization from the IPA before seeing a Swedish provider.

Important information about billing for anesthesia services

United Healthcare (UHC) patients: this Swedish facility uses U.S. Anesthesia Partners (USAP) on an exclusive basis.

Effective September 1, 2019, USAP is out-of-network with UHC. Patients with UHC insurance may incur larger out-of-pocket expenses than at a hospital that uses in-network anesthesiologists.

UHC Patients who are expecting to receive anesthesia services should contact USAP and their insurance company to determine their out-of-pocket expenses.

  • USAP: 206-625-0578
  • Insurance company: please refer to the phone number on your insurance card

Outside physician groups, such as USAP, bill separately from Swedish.

You should confirm with your insurance provider that the doctor you select participates with your insurance plan.
