How to get your recommendation

1. First of all, determine if you have a qualifying condition. Please refer to RCW 69.51a.010, which is posted below.
2.If you qualify, call your personal doctor and have them release your medical records to you. We only need at least 3 chart notes from within the past 3 years that document your condition.
3. Then fax or email your chart notes to (206) 319-5196 or althealththc@gmail.com. Make sure to include your phone number.
You may also download a Release of Information form to have your doctor’s office send the information for you. However, please contact us to ensure that we have your phone number. You will be contacted within 2-3 business days to schedule an appointment.  In the meantime, you may read the HIPAA Notice. If we can schedule your appointment, then you may fill out and sign the forms in this Patient Intake Packet to bring with you.
