Initial evaluations range in cost from $450.00 to $1,400.00, depending on the complexity of the evaluation. This fee includes the initial visit, the physical examination, diagnostic procedures and skin tests done at our clinic.  As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance company, however, payment is dependent upon the terms of your policy which includes your deductible.  Follow-up visits are billed separately from the initial visit, at an additional cost.

As a service to our patient we bill primary and secondary insurance claims. We require a copy of your insurance card(s) front and back in order to bill your insurance, so it is essential that this information be brought to the appointment. We will also need the insurance subscriber’s birthdate, employer and social security number if it is part of the insurance identification number.

PLEASE NOTE: Northwest Asthma & Allergy Center is obligated to comply with the policies and restrictions outlined by the insurance plan you have chosen for your health care needs. The filing of insurance claims is not a guarantee of payment. The responsibility of payment for services rendered rests directly with you, regardless of health insurance coverage. If you have questions regarding your insurance please contact your insurance provider prior to your appointment.

Credit policy

All charges are due and payable upon receipt of your monthly statement. If unusual circumstances make it impossible for you to meet these credit terms, please call our Patient Accounts Department at (206) 527-2577 to make alternate payment arrangements. Budget payment plans are available. You will receive a monthly statement that outlines your account balance and activity.

Co-Payments

Co-payments, if required by your insurance plan, must be paid at each appointment.

Managed Health Care Referrals

It is the patient’s responsibility to be aware of the limitations of their referral and to contact their Primary Care Physician when a new referral is needed. Failure to do so may result in being personally responsible for all charges incurred. In order to assist our patients to receive the highest reimbursement from their insurance company, our office will ask for insurance information at the time of scheduling the initial appointment to help determine if your insurance plan requires a referral or authorization to be seen by an allergy specialist. If you have secondary insurance coverage, and this plan requires a referral to see a specialist, please ensure you have obtained a referral to allow claims to be processed and paid by your secondary insurance plan.

Managed Care Insurances

Listed below are the Managed Care Insurances that have select plans where an insurance approved referral is required to be seen by a specialist. You should consult your insurance plan or Primary Care Physician prior to scheduling an appointment, for the specific requirements of your plan.  The referral must be on file at Northwest Asthma and Allergy Center BEFORE an appointment can be scheduled.
