Billing and Insurance Questions

Understanding your healthcare costs can be a challenge.

Costs depend on many factors, including your insurance, and the types of services you received.

Due to the overwhelming number of insurance plans, the staff at Dermatology Associates of Seattle can't guarantee coverage by any individual plan. It is the patient's responsibility to verify that we are a member of their PPO or HMO network and if a referral from their Primary Care Physician (PCP) is needed before seeing a dermatologist. It is also the patient's responsibility to inform our staff of any insurance coverage changes. Find out how to prepare for your appointment here.

Types of bills you may receive from your appointment are:
- Fees for the services your care provider performed
- Lab fees for tests
- Diagnostic processing.
