We participate with most insurance companies. It is your responsibility to be aware of your insurance coverage. We will bill your insurance, however, co-payments, denials and non-payment by an insurance company will be the patient’s responsibility. It is the responsibility of the parent that is bringing the child for the visit to pay the co-pay AT THE TIME OF SERVICE.
All co-pays are due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. There is a charge for returned checks. If you have a balance due, all payments will be applied toward the oldest past due amounts first. Outstanding balances of 120 days will be turned over to a collection agency which may result in discharge from the medical practice. Medical care is available for a sick child regardless of payment status.
Nurses are available to assist you with medical advice as recommended by our providers during regular business hours. After the office is closed, a provider is always on call for emergency concerns. If you experience a life-threatening emergency, please immediately call 911.
Test results should be available 1-3 days from the date of the test. We will call you with the results as they become available. We do not call on lead levels unless they are elevated. If you would like to call to confirm the results, please feel free to call during office hours.
Please call our office during normal business hours for your refill requests. Please allow 48 hours on all requests. Most medications can be forwarded to your pharmacy electronically. Medications that are prescribed for ADD/ADHD may be e-prescribed if your pharmacy can receive controlled substances electronically, therefore, you may no longer be required to pick up the prescription at the office.
Requests for a referral to a specialist are reviewed by a Pediatrician. It may be necessary for a patient to be seen at our office prior to a referral. A referral appointment may be scheduled with our receptionists.
To protect a patient’s confidentiality, our office policy allows completed paperwork to be given, mailed if a self addressed stamped envelope is provided or faxed to the patient or parent/guardian rather than a third party such as a school, day care or employer. Please allow one week for the completion of any forms.
