North Seattle Natural Medicine is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality medical care. We accept most major credit cards and Health Savings (HSA) account cards.
INSURANCE & PAYMENTS
Our doctors accept most major insurance plans but please be aware that individual coverage may vary depending on the plan.
We want you to get the best rate possible for your care which is why we ask all new patients to verify their exact coverage prior to the first appointment. If your insurance only covers a low percentage of your visit or if you have a high deductible that you feel you may not meet, we also offer a discount at time of service if you decide to pay privately for your appointments.
Sometimes insurance websites can be unclear about what your exact coverage is. We recommend calling the phone number on the back of your insurance ID card and directly asking about your naturopathic benefits. All you need to do is relay the doctor's full name and their National Provider ID (NPI) number to learn about your exact coverage.
If you are a new or returning patient switching to a Telemedicine appointment due to COVID19, please also ask "What is my coverage for Telemedicine Appointments with Dr. _____?" when you call.
Questions to Ask Your Insurance Provider
Do I have ND (Naturopathic) Benefits with (specific doctor)?
If your insurance says “preventative” visits are covered, that does NOT mean that you have ND benefits. Please relay their full name and NPI to find out what your exact coverage is.
Do I have a deductible that my office visit(s) and/or labs will go towards?
If so, you will need to meet your deductible before your insurance provider will start paying for the visits, so the entire bill will be out of pocket until the deductible is met. If you do not know the cost of your deductible, ask your insurance company before your visit and let us know upon checking in.
Do I have coinsurance?
This is what the insurance will cover versus what the patient’s responsibility is. Sometimes there is still a percentage of the cost that is the patient’s responsibility, even after you have met your deductible.
Labs/Imaging/Medical Procedure Costs: If you are intending on using your health insurance for any of these services, North Seattle Natural Medicine is not responsible for checking your coverage. The patient must contact their insurance directly in order to inquire about lab, imaging, and medical procedure costs, as well as co-insurance and deductibles for these services. North Seattle Natural Medicine has no input, affinity, or influence over these costs. All costs or personnel involved in these services are independent of our clinic.
For Acupuncture appointments:
Benefits may be different with Acupuncture. Please be sure you understand all of your Acupuncture benefits prior to scheduling. Please verify with your insurance directly that you are aware if you need any prior authorizations, if you have a set number of visits per year, or if there is any coinsurance/financial responsibility.
Please note: Note:
We are unable to directly bill insurance for Allergy Vaccines or Supplements.
Any supplements you may be prescribed are usually not covered by insurance, but are often eligible expenses under Health Savings Accounts and Medical Flexible Spending Account programs.
We ask that you please verify the above information through your insurance provider prior to your visit. There is usually a customer service phone number listed on the back of your insurance card. We encourage you to verify your benefits before your appointment so you are aware of any costs that you will be responsible for as you will be financially liable to pay for the visit if your insurance does not cover services rendered.
For most insurance plans, you will not have a copay for annual exams or preventative services (note: "preventative" is not the same as "naturopathic" benefits).
For most insurance plans, you will have a copay, coinsurance, or deductible for diagnostic or problem based services. (Example: ear infections, colds, acute medical needs, etc)
If you need both types of services on the same day, we can sometimes accommodate you. However, depending on what type of appointment you scheduled, the doctor might not have time to fully address multiple health goals or concerns within one visit and therefore may ask you to schedule separate appointments.
