  Insurance and Payment Information

Seattle Neurology, PS provides insurance billing. At the time of your initial visit, please bring your health insurance card so your insurance information can be entered into the electronic database correctly. According to your specific insurance plan, you may be required to make a co-payment at the time of your appointment. Seattle Neurology, PS uses an outside billing company who will then process your claim electronically. During the months following your appointment, you may receive copies of the explanations of benefits (EOBs) from your insurance company. These EOBs are sent to keep you informed about the progress of the billing process. You will eventually receive a statement from Seattle Neurology, PS, asking for the final sum that you are responsible to pay once your insurance company has paid their portion. This entire process can sometimes take 2-4 months.
