Regence BlueShield Discount

Harrison helps you keep the healthcare you need.

In August, Harrison’s contract with Regence Blue Shield was terminated. Together, CHI Franciscan Health and Harrison are committed to working with Regence patients to ease what could represent a significant financial hardship for the balance of 2014, until patients can select a different healthcare plan.

Harrison Medical Center is offering discounts to Regence patients for service performed from August 22 through December 31, 2014. Harrison is also offering financial assistance for those who qualify.

How it works.

The out-of-network billing process will change. Rather than Regence paying Harrison as it usually does, Regence will instead pay you, requiring you to turn around and pay us. We will make this process as easy as possible.

  1. After you receive care, we will send a bill to Regence as normal.
  2. Regence will send you an explanation of benefits (EOB). Harrison will no longer receive payments or explanation of benefits.
  3. Regence will send you a check for the portion of the hospital or clinic bill that it will cover.
  4. Please endorse the check and send it, along with the EOB to:

For professional payments received mail to:

Harrison HealthPartners-Business Office
2520 Cherry Avenue
Bremerton, WA 98310

For facility payments received services please mail to:

CHI Harrison Medical Center
1717 South J Street
Mail Stop 20-01
Tacoma, WA 98405

Once Regence has processed your claim and you have received a copy of your explanation of benefits (EOB), our Customer Service department will be able to assist you with questions regarding your out-of-pocket liability.
