Telephone Appointments Are Temporarily Available for Some Patients
If you or your child is a returning patient at Seattle Children’s and you have concerns about COVID-19, we may be able to offer you a phone appointment instead. This would allow you to complete your visit by phone instead of in person. If you are interested, please call the specialty clinic where your appointment is scheduled to learn more. See Seattle Children's Scheduling Numbers below.
If your child needs 4 or more appointments scheduled within a 3-month period, the Coordinated Scheduling team can help. They specialize in scheduling and coordinating multiple appointments across different clinics and services. Please call 206-987-7372.

Types of Referrals
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
