What Insurance Does Alpine Pediatrics Take?  We accept all major insurance and most of the small companies as well.  If you are unsure about your insurance, please call your insurance company to verify that you can be seen at Alpine Pediatrics.

Processing Claims: If you are insured, Alpine Pediatrics will try in every way we can to make the processing of insurance claims as simple as possible. In order to do this, we ask that you please come to your child’s appointment with your current insurance card to ensure we have the most correct information for claim submission. We also ask that you are prepared to pay any patient portion that you may owe or that is required of you to pay.

Cash Pay:  If your children are not insured, payment is expected at the time of service.  We offer a 25% discount to cash pay patients if paid that day. 

Hardship:  Please ask for a member of our billing department or an office manager if you would like to pursue financial assistance.  We will require a copy of a legal form of identifications, prior year tax return, 3 most recent paystubs, insurance card, proof of application for Medicaid or CHIP, and a letter of explanation. 

I have insurance but still owe money, why?  Insurance companies do not always pay for all medical services, even those that might be helpful to the patient. It is very important for you to know and understand your insurance benefits. There are many policies and plans for each person or employer group, and we are unable to determine what your policy benefits are for each visit based on the information on your insurance card.

We encourage you to ask your insurance plan important questions regarding your benefits such as:

  • Do I have well child or preventative care for my child?
  • Is there a limit or maximum benefit to the well child or preventative care?
  • Are the vaccines covered by my insurance?
  • Are there vaccine coverage limitations? Alpine Pediatrics follows the current immunization guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Center for Disease Control’s Advisory committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
  • If my child is having an office procedure done, such as wart removal, mole removal, fracture care, laceration repair etc.; what will I be responsible to pay?
  • Does my plan have a deductible that will need to be paid each year and how much is my deductible?
  • How much is my copayment?
  • Coinsurance is a percentage of the charges that may be your responsibility and is not part of the copayment.
  • Is the physician or physician assistant participating with your insurance plan?
