Buying new insurance? Check to make sure we're in-network!

For most Americans the Affordable Care Act plans are confusing.  Many new plans are being offered and it is difficult to know whether your preferred physicians are participating providers in those networks.  

We want you to be able to continue seeing our pediatricians and nurse practitioners so we recommend that you check with the insurance plans that you are considering and ask if we are in-network providers.  If not, you may want to look at another plan.

It is also important for you to be aware of what is covered under your policy.  Each plan can have different coverage.  Depending on what you choose, your plan may cover 60% of allowed charges.  Other plans may cover 90%.  While ALL plans MUST provide preventative care, not all plans cover things like physical therapy.   So if you have an injury prone person in your family, you may want that kind of coverage.

We are in many insurance plans that are PPO, HMO, POS or EPO product lines but we ask that you not assume that we are in-network without contacting the insurance carrier.

All of our providers participate in the All Kids program if your child is eligible for benefits.
