We ask that all new Premier families read our policies before their first visit. If you have any questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Premier Pediatrics strongly enforces our 20 Minute Rule. If you arrive more than 20 minutes after your scheduled Well Child Appointment, we reserve the right to reschedule your appointment. We have implemented this policy to help our physicians stay on schedule. Please be courteous to those who are scheduled after your visit by arriving on time.
Cancellations – We ask that you call us as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment.
Thank you for making an appointment with our nutritionist. Please note that this visit will be billed to your insurance company and may incur a copay or deductible as per your policy.
Our staff nutritionist only works one day a week, therefore the appointments are limited. We understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to emergencies or obligations for work or family. However, when you do not call and cancel an appointment, you may be preventing another patient from getting much needed treatment. If you need to cancel this appointment, advance notice of 48 hours should be given. If an appointment is not cancelled at least 48 hours in advance you will be charged a fifty dollar ($50) fee; this will not be covered by your insurance company.
We request that an insurance card is presented at each visit. All co-payments and past due balances are due at time of check-in unless previous arrangements have been made with a billing coordinator. We accept cash, check or credit cards. No post-dated checks will be accepted.
Plans not accepted:
**All HMO plans make sure PCP is selected
***Plans are subject to change. Please call the office to confirm.
There is no charge for a single set of medical records. Any additional copies will cost $.75 per page. If you are leaving the practice, we suggest that you pick up the records. Premier Pediatrics cannot be responsible for claims that the records have not reached the destination. To guarantee receipt of records, we advise our patient’s families to pick up the records themselves.
Premier handles the majority of screening labs in our offices. Infrequently, we send patients to outside labs. When possible, we recommend that you use the following centers:
NYU – 550 first avenue
Beth Israel Hospital – 10 Union Square East, Manhattan
Methodist Hospital – 506 6th Street, Brooklyn
Labcorp – multiple locations
Quest Labs/Lab Corp. – multiple locations
The charge for a returned check is $30 payable by cash or money order. This will be applied to your account in addition to the insufficient funds amount. You may be placed on a cash-only basis following any returned check.
Thank you for making an appointment with Premier Pediatrics Lactation services. When you and your baby are being seen by the lactation consultant, you will also be registered as a patient of our practice. This is because the lactation consultant will be making medical recommendations for both of you. We will attempt to bill your insurance company for your portion of the visit. In the event your insurance does not cover this service, Premier Pediatrics will only charge a $30 fee. Depending on your child’s insurance plan, you may also be responsible for any co-payments, deductible, and/or co-insurances.
