Financial Policy 

**IF YOU HAVE A DEDUCTIBLE YOUR INITIAL PAYEMENT AT TIME OF SERVICE WILL BE $25 and the rest will be billed to your insurance and YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE for the remaining portion as determined by your insurance explantion of benefits.  We are not able to verify if you have met your deductible and will charge the $25 initially and then will wait for your insurance to company to provide us with your payment status; at that time you may be issued a credit or refund if you have met your deductible.

Adults accompanying patients are asked to pay for the child's healthcare at the time of service. This includes but is not limited to: DEDUCTIBLES, co-pays, outstanding co-insurance amounts, outstanding deductible amounts, outstanding non-covered services or any other outstanding balance at the time of service. A $5.00 fee will be added to co-pays not made at the time of service and will not be waived.

We are sensitive to the fact that sometimes agreements are made between parties during a separation or divorce regarding the responsibility of payment for healthcare. However, this agreement does not include Lyndon Pediatric Associates. We do not split bill for services. We hold to our policy that the accompanying adult will pay for services that day and/or any outstanding balance. For your convenience arrangements can be made with our office to keep a credit or debit card on file to make the necessary payment at the time of service.

Sometimes a child is brought to the office for a Preventative/Well Child visit and will present with a complaint of illness or symptoms or they will be found on examination. This situation will be billed for both the Preventative and sick visit as allowed by guidelines established by the CMS and the AMA. You may be charged a co-pay, co-insurance or deductible as your contract with your insurance carrier states.  

It is the parent or guardian's responsibility to provide the most current insurance information at every office visit. You will be asked to present the card upon arrival along with any co-pay or outstanding balance. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to know what your insurance covers and what it requires for payment and referral services. If you receive a bill that you question please contact us right away. Late payment fees of $15.00 per billing statement will no longer be waived.

There is a $25.00 fee for returned checks.

Please confirm with us that we are participating providers with any insurance carriers that you may be switching to before making that change. Their manuals may not be current.

If you find that you have a balance that is difficult for you to pay in one or two installments please contact our office to make payment arrangements. As long as you are able to keep our arrangements we will be able to defer any billing fees. Payments will be due on the 10th of each month.  We want to work with you! Please call. Any arrangements made and not kept will be forwarded to our Collection agency as a delinquent account.

Remember you are responsible for, but not limited to, the following:

  • Co-pays at the time of service
  • Co-insurance
  • Deductibles
  • Non-covered services 
  • Failure to list our Physicians as your Primary Care Provider
  • Terminated Coverage
  • Contract Limitations
  • No Insurance Coverage
  • Failure to respond to Insurance company correspondence
  • Returned checks and the $40.00 administration fee
  • Late payment Billing Fees

 

Your children are important to us. We appreciate your cooperation with this policy.
