Billing Policies

We LOVE delivering quality pediatric and genetics care and enjoy the personal relationships we have with our patients and families. We must however recover charges for these services so we can continue to survive and thrive. This way we can continue to always “be there”, whenever you need us. Below is a list of our billing policies that will help us continue to deliver the highest quality medical care that you deserve. 

  • We accept most select insurance carriers that recognize Clinical Genetics specialty and consider us In-Network. Please call the clinic to get an update for your specific insurance carrier.
  • Co-payments, coinsurances, deductibles, and any charges for non-insurance covered services must be paid at the time of service.
  • If you are unable to provide us with proof of coverage, full payment of your visit will be necessary at the time service is rendered.
  • If you do not have insurance or are on a plan in which we do not participate, full payment is required at the time of your visit. We will supply any necessary information for you to file your insurance claim.
  • You may charge your balance to your credit card. We encourage families to authorize Pediatrics and Genetics to charge a credit card for balances that appear on their children’s accounts.

  • Let us know if your family is under significant financial hardship. Payment plans can be arranged if necessary. We want to be sure that your family receives the care you need and deserve.

It is your responsibility to let us know of any changes in insurance data, addresses, telephone numbers, etc. and to assure your insurance policy registered with Pediatrics and Genetics remains updated and active.
  • We will bill the insurance company you designate for the services we provide. If we do not receive payment from your insurance company within 60 days, the balance transfers to your responsibility. You will be notified about any unpaid amounts
  • If balances not covered by insurance remain unpaid by you after 60 days notification, we may need to reschedule routine checkup appointments.
  • We may charge a nominal fee of $20 for completing complex forms. Our staff will advise you of this if this is the case with any request you make.

Cancellations / Late Arrivals / Walk-Ins

  • Please call / email us 24 hours in advance if unable to keep your appointment. No Shows and same day Cancellations will be billed $25 to discourage disruption of patient care in the clinic.
  • If you are 15 minutes late for your appointment, our staff will ask the doctor to help determine when best to see your child. You may be worked into the schedule with a wait, you may be given the next available appointment, or you may be asked to reschedule.  This will help us balance the needs of all of our patients.
