INSURANCE and FEES

INSURANCE
 
Redmont Pediatrics files with most major insurance companies, with the exception of Medicaid and United Healthcare-Compass (better known as market place bronze, silver, gold and platinum plans).  You should contact your insurance company to confirm we are participants prior to your appointment.  The child's parent/guardian is responsible for providing current, active insurance information to us for each visit.  
 
Please let us know immediately of any insurance changes and provide us with a copy of your new card.  
 
Most insurance companies allow nine well check-ups between birth and the age of two.  Beginning at age two, most insurances allow one wellness visit each year to the age of seven.  Then wellness visits are allowed once every 1 - 2 years for ages seven to thirty-five, depending upon your employer's contract with the insurance provider.   You need to be aware of your coverage before scheduling a well check-up for your child.
 
Parents of newborns have 30 days from the date of birth to add the new baby.  Depending upon your human resources department's requirements, you can either go online or fill  out the necessary paperwork to add the newborn with as much information as is available. Submit the application to your employer and/or insurance company when you arrive home from the hospital.  A copy of the birth certificate and the baby's Social Security number are required to complete the insurance application; however, if you wait until you have both of these items to start the process of adding the baby, it may exceed the 30 day time limit constraint.  
 
FEES & FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
 
Co-payments, non-covered services and any outstanding balances are due prior to being seen at each office visit.  We accept American Express, Discover , Mastercard, Visa, cash and checks as forms of payment.  There is a $5.00 billing fee if you are unable to pay your copay or your balance in full at the time of service.  If a check is returned, there is a $20.00 charge assessed to your account to cover the NSF fee charged to Redmont Pediatrics by the bank.
 
We ask for 48 hours notice to complete blue forms, school forms, camp forms and medication forms, at a cost of $5.00 each.  FMLA forms also require a 48 hour notice before pick-up and are completed for a charge of $25.00.
 
Our policy of calling the number you provide to us 24 hours prior to a wellness visit gives you the opportunity to cancel or reschedule these appointments.   If we do not hear from you the day before the visit and you are  unable to keep the appointment, you may be assessed a $20.00 charge for a non-cancellation fee.
