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

Pam English began her career in Social Work working with teen parents and providing in-home parenting support and education to first time parents. She also spent several years as a supervisor of a community based Early Childhood Program. After making the decision to return to direct service work, English took a job providing intensive in-home support services to families involved with the child welfare system. During this time, she provided individual and family counseling in addition to case management and crisis support services to families in Columbia, Washington and Multnomah Counties.

English's growing passion for social work and social justice lead her to pursue a Masters degree in Social Work. It was during this time that she discovered her interest in medical social work and behavioral health integration in primary care. 

In her spare time, Pam enjoys cooking, hiking, trying new restaurants, gardening, camping, reading, games, movies and time with friends. She and her partner Chris are expecting their first child in June and are excited to enter the realm of parenthood.
