Our Convenient 50-50 Plan:
Did you know that 43% of employers in Washington do not offer health benefits (Seattle Times, April 2, 2009)? We believe in universal access to healthcare and back up our belief with the 50-50 Health Plan for patients without health insurance or on a high deductible plan. Why? Because eliminating the cause of a disease does not happen in a single visit and because prevention is a continuous effort.
Contact us for more information on the 50/50 plan, other cash payment options, and packages at 425-273-0741, or contact Debra, Puget Sound Medical Billing, at 877-776-2311.
