    Insurance and Referral Information

    Although we take almost all major insurances, please call our office to make sure our practice and your child's doctor accept your insurance before your visit.

    All patients must have a referral from a primary care physician before they call to make an appointment.

    If your insurance is an HMO, you must also:

    • Make sure your referral has not expired. Many are good for only 30 days, so check yours before you come to your appointment. If your referral has expired, call your primary care physician and explain your situation. In most cases, your primary care provider will provide you with a new or extended referral.
    • Bring the referral with you to the appointment. If you do not have a referral or if the referral you have is expired, your HMO will not pay for your appointment.
