If your child lives in Washington, Alaska, Montana or Idaho and is currently enrolled in a Medicaid plan, then all medically necessary services are fully covered. You will not receive bills.
If you have been approved for 100% coverage from Seattle Children’s Financial Assistance, you will not receive bills. If you have a sliding-scale financial assistance plan, you will receive reduced bills.
In most cases, you will receive one bill from Seattle Children’s for medical services. If your child sees a mental health or dental provider, you will receive a separate bill for these. This means you may get more than one statement for the same date of care. These bills will include provider fees and applicable facility fees. See Clinic and Urgent Care Facility Charges (PDF) for more information.
You may receive a separate bill from other providers and services if your child:
Seattle Children’s Financial Assistance does not cover bills for these services. If you have questions about bills from the type of providers listed above, contact the company that sent you the bill.
A facility charge includes hospital expenses for a clinic visit that are separate from the cost of the medical provider. See Clinic and Urgent Care Facility Charges (PDF) for more information.
There are a few Seattle Children’s clinics that are not licensed this way and will not bill a facility charge. See the locations that do not bill a facility charge.
