It is your responsibility to confirm with your insurance that we participate in their network.

Medicaid Policy:
We will only accept Medicaid patients with a valid, active recipient ID number, which we will verify before any services are rendered.
If you have applied for Medicaid but not yet received it, we will provide services up to 30 days from the date of birth with a $50 payment before any services are rendered. After 30 days if we cannot verify Medicaid coverage you will be treated as a self pay patient and will need to pay the full cost of the visit. We will not reimburse the payments at a later date.

You must ensure that South Charlotte Pediatrics is listed as the Primary Care Physician (PCP) with Medicaid. We will not see your child if another Physician/Facility is listed as the PCP.

If you have any other Private insurance in addition to Medicaid, we will bill only the Private insurance, and you will be responsible for the copays and deductibles applicable to that insurance plan. We do not accept or bill Medicaid as a secondary insurance.


Payment Options:
Copays, deductibles and outstanding balances will be collected at the time of visit upon arrival. We accept cash, checks, Visa, and MasterCard.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will file a claim for reimbursement of services with your insurance carrier. However, services not paid within 30 days becomes the patient's responsibility.


Referrals:
Our staff will assist families in obtaining referrals for consultations with sub specialists and other allied health personnel. However, it is the ultimate responsibility of the patient/family to assure that this process has been completed prior to the date of referral. Appropriate office notes will be forwarded to the consultant to provide them with pertinent information for optimum evaluation of your child.
