Insurance Coverage

Many insurance companies are now covering naturopathic medicine. Presently in Oregon, most major health insurance carriers consider Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) as Primary Care Physicians (PCPs), and offer benefits through alternative health care plans. If you have insurance coverage for Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Woodyard offers complimentary billing to your insurance company.

Dr. Melissa Woodyard is an in-network provider for Cigna, Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, American Specialty Health (ASH), Providence, HealthNet, Aetna, Health Republic, and LifeWise.  She hopes to be credentialed with additional insurance companies very soon.

She will bill out-of-network for most other insurance companies including United, PacificSource, Multiplan, and Moda, as well as others. If you do not have insurance she offers a discount and requires payment in full at the time of service.
