It is recommended that
you have adequate health insurance coverage. For most insurance programs,
your policy agreement is between you and your carrier, while the arrangement for
service and payment is between the doctor and you, not the doctor and your
insurance company. We will attempt to provide you with all the necessary
information for filing claims and assist you in any manner that we are
able. We file all claims for the insurance companies with which we participate.
Co-payments are collected prior to being seen.
If you child is having a check-up and you
do not have your co-payment, you will be asked to reschedule the appointment.
Please bring your child's insurance card to each visit.
We attempt to verify your
insurance coverage prior to each visit. Currently we are able to
verify patient eligibility and benefits for many of the larger insurance
companies on-line. If we are unable to verify your insurance prior to
your appointment or if your insurance has changed, we must receive a copy of
the current insurance card.
Please inform us promptly of any change in your insurance carrier by filling
out an insurance change form.
