*We may not be participating with this plan in the future.
As you know, many of these health plans offer a variety of product lines. We may not participate in some of these (e.g. CDPHP Child Health Plus). Moreover, there are many smaller plans that we do accept that are not listed above. If in doubt, please touch base with us.
We also accept indemnity, select, and point-of-service plans.
Office Visit Fees
$75 for 10 min appointment (earaches, sore throats, rashes...)
$150 for 20 min visit (check up on healthy child, headache, fatigue, and other complex concerns)
Payment is expected at the time of service [and a discount will be provided - contact us for current rate].
These fees do not include office labs (rapid strep, urine analysis), office tests (vision, hearing screens), vaccines, or billing fees. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover credit cards, check, and cash payment along with HSA and FSA cards.
We recognize that increasing numbers of families either have no health insurance, or are moving toward high-deductible health plans (HDHPs). Note that effective January 1, 2011, a $50 deposit will be required at the time of visit for patients being seen with HDHPs.
