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

Meera Kanakia became a nurse practitioner to work closely with people and truly influence their health and well-being. She enjoys the challenge of staying up-to-date in a field that is constantly changing. She is especially excited about developments in women's health — a field she is passionate about.

Along with providing excellent primary care, Kanakia strives to be an information resource for her patients by staying updated about the latest health advances.

She came to Portland from Connecticut and chose OHSU because of its excellent reputation. She also wanted to work in an academic institution that offers opportunities for teaching and learning as well as patient care.

When she's not working, Kanakia loves to be outdoors — running, hiking, exploring different neighborhoods and meeting new people. She also loves to read.
