Practice Policies

Referral Policy

Practice-Policies.jpgFrom time to time it will be necessary for PPA to refer your child to an outside lab and/or specialist for further evaluation.

While we make every attempt to insure this facility/physician is in-network with your insurance company, it is ultimately YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure this is the correct facility with your plan. Please make sure you check your benefit book or call your insurance company representative before going to any specialist/facility for treatment. If there are any discrepancies you should advise our office BEFORE proceeding so we can assist you with any necessary changes. 

PPA will not be financially responsible, under any circumstances, should you go to an out-of-network facility.

Form Charges

Health forms not brought at the time of your child’s well visit/physical will be assessed a $10 fee and processed within 3-5 business days. Health forms needed sooner than 3 business days will be assessed a $15 fee and completed within 24-72 hours.

Complex forms such as FMLA paperwork will be assessed a $25 fee and completed within 14 business days.

Thank you for your time in reading these policies and please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with any one of us.
