Insurance Policy

Pediatrics East of New York accepts new patients and recommends that everyone confirm that we accept their insurance plan beforehand.

We accept the following insurance plans:

  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Oxford
  • United Heathcare
  • Multiplan/PHCS
  • 1199 NBF SEIU

(NOTE: we do not accept community based or Medicaid affiliated plans).

Copay

Copays are collected at the time of the service (ie, sick visits). Outstanding copayments will be subject to a $50 service charge. If your account is past due we may use the credit card on file or be forced to send the account to a third party collections agency.  We will attempt to contact you first and make every effort to work with you so a payment schedule could be set up for the account. If you have switched insurance plans, it is your responsibility to provide the updated information at your earliest convenience to our billing staff to avoid potential billing and appointment scheduling conflicts.

Online Payments

For your convenience, our practice offers a secure way to pay your balance online through InstaMed.  Payment options include Mastercard, Visa, and Discover.

Referrals to Subspecialists

We ask you to contact our office staff if you need a referral for any specialist visits. We are NOT responsible for referrals called in after the specialist visits, as the insurance carriers have set time limits on the creation of the referrals. For example, Oxford insurance gives a 72hr window.

For further information, please contact our office ask for billing or email billings@pedsoneast.com.

Lactation Service

When your baby is registered as a patient of our practice and needs lactation support, we have our own lactation consultant to help you and your baby to reach your breastfeeding goals.  We will attempt to bill your insurance for this part of your baby’s visit, in the event that your insurance does not cover this service, you will be responsible for the $60 fee.
