Some charges will be covered by insurance. Many times, medical insurance will pay the anesthesia charges for children under the age of six, patients with a mental or physical handicap, or patients with a medical necessity. We participate with many of the most popular insurance plans and will work with your insurance company and you to provide your child with care. We can do a predetermination with your insurance company to find out if your policy provides coverage for our services.
Other insurance plans will do predeterminations, but we don’t do these through our office. Our staff will be glad to assist you with the information you’ll need when contacting your insurance company to determine if you’re child will be covered. You can usually accomplish the predetermination over the phone, but we suggest you have your insurance company send you a letter of confirmation.
We do expect advance payment as a deposit before the day of service. Payment in full for all deductibles and co-payments, as well as payment in full for all other insurances or those without insurance coverage is expected the day of service.
