Common Questions

How is the Concierge Practice model different from a traditional medical practice?
We have intentionally limited the size of our practice to devote more time to each patient’s care and individual needs.

The patients will have little to no office waiting room time.

Appointments will start promptly.

We can schedule longer appointment times and both the physician and the patient will feel less rushed and more connected.

Patients can contact Dr. Foltz on her personal patient-dedicated cell phone and email, making it easier than ever to communicate.

What is the Fee to become a patient of Seattle Concierge OB GYN?
The Annual Concierge Fee for Gynecology (non-pregnant) Care is $1,500.

Our pricing is simple and transparent. You will receive no more bills or costs from us for Dr. Foltz’s Professional services for the remainder of the year, no matter how many times you need to see us for your medical care.

We are Out of Network with all insurance plans, but you can use your insurance plan (such as Aetna, Premera, Regence, United, Kaiser, Cigna, Uniform, First Choice) to get reimbursed for your visit with Dr. Foltz. At the end of your first visit, we will give you a Super Bill which you can submit to your insurance carrier for Out of Network coverage reimbursement. Historically, most patients get reimbursed between $200 – $600 for this. Please check with your individual insurance plan regarding your Out of Network benefits. Please ask us if you would like the CPT codes for your visit, so you can have a better idea of your Out of Network coverage.

The Annual Concierge Fee is renewable yearly.

Can I use my insurance for my medical care with Dr. Foltz?
Yes. You can use your insurance coverage for all of your lab work, PAP smear pathology results, ultrasounds, mammogram, hospital services, or any other specialists you would need to see. Your Annual Fee to Dr. Foltz is NOT covered by your insurance. However, you can use your Out of Network benefits to get reimbursed for the CPT codes used for your visit. You can also use your HSA and FSA cards to pay for your fee to Dr. Foltz.

Do I still need health insurance to enroll with you?
We are Out of Network with all commercial insurance plans. You can use your medical insurance (such as Aetna, Regence, Premera, Cigna, United, Kaiser, First Choice, Uniform) to get reimbursed for your care with Dr. Foltz by requesting a Super Bill from us after your visit. You can then easily submit this online to your insurance plan to get reimbursed. To get an estimate of how much your plan will reimburse you, please call them and ask for what your Out of Network coverage is for specific Obstetrical (if pregnant) or Gynecologic (if not pregnant) CPT codes. Please let us know if we can provide you with the specific CPT codes you would need, before you call your insurance plan.

You will use your Medical Insurance for all of your care otherwise – labwork, ultrasound, mammogram, hospital stay, labor and delivery bill, surgery, etc. just like you would with any other medical office.
