Helping You Navigate the Insurance Maze

Because today’s insurance policies come with significantly higher co-pays and deductibles, you’re likely to face larger out-of-pocket expenses for your health care. The compassionate Patient Advocates at Pella Regional help you prepare for the cost of your medical procedure, understand the payment process and avoid financial surprises.

Together with a Patient Advocate, you’ll review your specific insurance situation and your doctor’s recommended procedure. Then, our Advocate will estimate your actual cost and work with you to find the best method of payment.
