INSURANCE: Partners in Pediatrics, LLC accepts assignment of insurance benefits from most major insurance companies for payment of services on your behalf. It remains your responsibility to verify coverage with our physicians and your specific policy before treatment. Our business office is ready to assist you with your coverage questions.
CO-PAY: Your insurance policy and the agreement between your physician and the insurance company requires that we collect a co-pay per patient per visit. The parent or authorized person must pay co-pays at the time of service. If a co-pay is not made at the time of service, then an additional $10.00 service charge is added to your account.
SELF-PAY: If your child does not have medical coverage or is out of the network, then you must see the business office before treatment. You are responsible for all charges incurred at the time of service. The business office will assist you with the amount due. You may receive a copy of your itemized billing statement for insurance or tax purposes.
NO SHOW: As a courtesy, we will provide reminders for your appointment. If you are unable to make your scheduled time, then you must notify our office 24 hours prior to that time. Missing three (3) scheduled appointments will result in dismissal from the practice.
HOSPITALIZATION: In the event of hospitalization we will file the hospital charges incurred for the physician treating your child. If newborn patient charges are incurred, then it is your responsibility to add the newborn to your policy or another acceptable policy within 30 days of date of birth. If no insurance is acquired, then you will be responsible for all newborn hospital charges and all subsequent office visit charges if any.
AGREEMENT TO PAY: In case of default of payment and if this account is placed in the hands of a collector, collection agency or attorney, then all collection fees, attorney’s fees, (33.33%) court costs and all other expenses related to the collection of the outstanding balance will be paid by the undersigned.
