1. Visit Your Primary Care Provider
Your medical provider will evaluate your concern and, if necessary, make a referral to a specialist.
2. Verify Your Insurance and Referral Information
Check that the physician you have been referred to is a preferred provider and that your visit will be covered.
3. Make an Appointment with the Specialist
We will initiate the referral process and in most cases schedule your appointment for you (per specialist preference) once your health plan has approved the referral. For some specialties, we will ask you to book the first appointment (Seattle Childrens and all Mental Health). Please verify that the specialist has received the pertinent medical records sent from our referral coodinator prior to your appointment.
