If your child is covered by insurance, please bring your insurance card with you to simplify registration. Our staff will copy the card and submit charges directly to your insurance company. Your urgent care copay will be collected at the time of service. If your plan does not have an urgent care copay, we will collect the specialist copay listed on your card at the time of service.

About 30 days after your visit, you should receive a notice from your insurance company summarizing the charges and payment for service. If your insurance company has covered the full amount, your insurance company will send payment directly to us. If the insurance company has applied some of the charges to your deductible, we will send you a bill for the amount still owed.

Please note that each insurance plan is a contract between you and your insurance company, and each plan is different. If you have specific questions about your plan benefits and what charges will be applied to your deductible, please contact your insurance company directly.
