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
  • Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield (excluding HealthPlus Plan)
  • Oxford Freedom and Liberty (excluding Metro and Kaleidoscope Plans)
  • United Heathcare (excluding Compass Plan)

(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.
