Frequently Asked Questions
Are Memberships Available for my special needs or neuro-divergent child?
Not yet, But we are working on it! The Clinic will pilot memberships in the general pediatric population before rolling out a membership program for our special needs community.
Do you offer any membership discounts?
Yes! We offer a 5% discount for an annual payment made in full, active military, students, medical residency, and fellows.
I already have health insurance; should I keep that insurance?
Clinic Memberships are available so you can choose your child's primary care, instead of being limited by insurance companies. While we provide extensive pediatric services, there can be occasions that a child will need healthcare outside of our practice. We highly recommend that you retain, at minimum, catastrophic insurance to cover these unexpected costs.
Do you accept insurance?
No. The Clinic does accept Medicaid Direct and AmeriHealth Medicaid. Otherwise, we do not participate in any insurance plan and are considered an out-of-network provider on most health plans. You will need to contact your individual insurance provider to see if they will reimburse you for out-of-network services .
Are vaccines or medications covered under the Clinic Membership?
No, they are not.
How do I pay for my child's membership?
Membership fees are automatically charged monthly to your checking account or credit card. You can use your health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to pay—or any credit card or checking account. We offer a 5% discount for annual payment. Since your membership fee is automatically charged, you never have to worry about an unpaid bill or wonder if any insurance claim has been processed or how much you still owe.
