Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

Dr. Katie Putnam is a family physician. She is passionate about being a well-rounded family medicine physician while also working in population health and advocating for improved medical care.

During medical school, she did clinical and research work at the Ministry of Health in Palau. She focused on maternal and child health. She has also volunteered at a safety-net clinic and women's clinic through the former Southwest Community Health Center in Portland. These experiences inspired her interest in providing health care centered on communities and families, while also working on research to address public health needs.

When she's not working, Dr. Putnam enjoys exploring the outdoors. She enjoys playing group sports, with limited athletic talent, and navigating Portland's food scene.
