COVID-19: What to Expect for Your Child’s Safety at In-Person Appointments

We’ve made a lot of changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from covid-19. Every patient is allowed to have a maximum of one parent or caregiver accompany them. Everyone else, including siblings of any age, may not come along. When you come for your appointment, you will see that we’re requiring everyone to wear masks at all times, cleaning check-in and registration desks between visits, screening for symptoms at all entrances and have set up our spaces to encourage social distancing. Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place.

Virtual Appointments through Telemedicine

Types of Referrals

Provider referral

Comes from your primary care provider (PCP) or specialist. It allows us to work with your PCP to understand your child’s health care needs, gather health records and determine the best specialty care for your child. Many of our clinics require a provider referral.

Insurance referral (pre-authorization)

Comes from your insurance company. They may require a pre-authorization before we can schedule an appointment or testing for your child.

For questions about insurance benefits and authorization requirements, call your insurance company. Our Insurance Services Department will contact you, once your appointment is scheduled, if there is a problem.

Prepare for Your Visit

Make sure your Seattle Children’s clinic has everything they need for your child’s appointment, including X-rays and medical records. Learn more.
