Insurance & Billing
Kids Central Pediatrics is proud to provide the highest standard of pediatric care for children. Our goal is to always do what is in the child’s best interest regardless of what insurance companies are trying to force upon us for financial reasons.
Insurances require that we collect co-pays up front prior to us billing your insurance company. We therefore ask you to have your co-pay available for each visit. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not cover a certain procedure or visit we ask that you pay that visit in full at the time you are seen. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. If you get an unexpected bill that you cannot pay in full we ask that you contact us to make a payment arrangement. Do not make a payment arrangement up on your own as unpaid balances without arrangement will be sent to a collection agency after a period of five (5) months. Patients that are turned over to a collection agency twice will be dismissed from the practice. Patients that file bankruptcy and list our balance to be dismissed in bankruptcy proceedings will also be dismissed from our practice.
If your insurance company does not cover immunizations and well child visits, you will be responsible for payment in full at that date of service. You must provide all insurance cards at time of service. We must be able to verify your eligibility. If proper information such as disenrollment, changes in PCP, deductible and effective dates are not provided to our office, then you become responsible for any unpaid balance.
We do not accept new TennCare patients.
