We have been getting a lot of inquiries about Medicaid lately. So far, Dr. Bowker, Dr. Martez, and Dr. Hurd are all participating Medicaid providers; however, their participation with individual Medicaid plans (such as Molina, Amerigroup, and Community Health Plan) varies. Some plans still do not cover Naturopathic services despite the change in WA law. It is the patient's responsibility to research your individual plan and know your benefits. Some plans allow patients to see NDs with a referral and some consider an ND to be a PCP. We cannot keep track of all of the different plans and rules but do offer sliding scale as an alternative if you find your plan does not cover Naturopathic Services. Please call the office if you have questions or want to know which plans we are directly contracted with: (360) 282-4014.
