Insurance and Payment
Parker Pediatrics and Adolescents, P.C. (PPA) wants to be sure that you understand our responsibility to you and your insurance company, as well as your financial responsibility to us. Please read this carefully and ask further questions if needed.
We participate with the following insurance plans with any exclusions noted:
- Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Cigna – Most plans, but NOT the following:
- Colorado Children’s Health Plan (CHP)
- Medicaid/Health First Colorado
- United Healthcare
If you are not a member of one of our contracted plans, we will be happy to see you under a fee-for service agreement. Payment is expected to be paid at the time of service and you will receive a copy of the feeslip to submit to your plan. We offer a discount for anyone who pays for their visit in full at the time of service.
It is your responsibility to understand your particular plan, as well as any health savings plans you may have in effect. According to your insurance plan, you are responsible for any copays, deductibles, coinsurance or non-covered services. Copays are due at the time of your visit.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to implement a safe and “touchless” method of collecting payments we have secured a new encrypted merchant service vault via a third-party provider. This will be a convenient method for our patients and parents to pay telehealth copays, as well as balances on accounts. We will continue to bill your insurance plans, but once the claim has been processed, we will automatically charge your credit/debit/HSA card on file for any balance due up to $200 per month. Copays will still be collected in office at the time of service. Telehealth copays will be run typically the next business day.
Your information will be secure, as we will run your card to an encrypted merchant service vault via a third-party provider (same services used with many other businesses you may use, such as Amazon, airlines, hotels, etc.). We will only have access to the last four digits on the card.
Please be assured that if there are financial difficulties which preclude you from settling your account, we are more than happy to work with you but you must communicate this to us and make a plan with our Business Office. Also be aware, that unless you have a credit card on file, the adult who accompanies the patient or the unaccompanied adolescent will be responsible for copayments.
Well visit/annual exam and asthma appointments require a 24-hour cancellation notice, and all psychology appointments require a 48-hour notice. Late cancellation/no show fees respectively range from $65.00 to $85.00. Under certain circumstances, patients may be discharged from our practice in lieu of this fee.
If there are financial difficulties, we will work with you to allow uninterrupted care for your child(ren). If, however, you fail to respond to your financial obligation either by payment or arrangements with our Business Office, we will need to enforce our collection policy. This could involve your account being turned over to our collection agency, collection fees assessed, and dismissal from our practice.
