We will bill your health insurance directly for the services you received at Partners in Pediatrics as long as you supply us with a copy of your insurance card. We have contracts with various insurance carriers, PPOs and HMOs. Charges for the services billed to our contracted insurance carriers will be discounted to their allowed amount. Patients are responsible for any copays, deductibles, any non-covered services and usual and customary amounts for non-contracted insurance.
All co-payments are due at the time of service as required by your insurance carrier.
A statement from Children’s Minnesota will be sent within 30 days of your visit, unless we are billing your insurance carrier. The statement will include charges incurred, date of service, patients’ name, the diagnosis and procedure codes and any amounts that are due by the insurance carrier and those due by the patient.
- While Partners in Pediatrics participates with many insurance plans, it is your responsibility to determine if we are participating providers in your particular plan. Doing so can save you unnecessary expense.
- We make every effort to resolve insurance issues, but please remember, you are ultimately responsible for the cost of your healthcare.
- Since every plan is different, be sure to check your coverage if you have specific questions about what your insurance will pay.
- Please present a copy of your current insurance card at each visit. Any copayments are due at the time of service.
- The determination of what you owe is made by your insurance company. We will mail a statement to you if there is a balance due.
- Any amount owed is due upon receipt of your statement. You can mail your payment, pay us online or call our business office to pay at 952-992-5560.
- Due to privacy laws, patients 18 and older have their own account.
- Our computer system can only send correspondence to one address. It is our policy to use the address where the patient lives.
- Partners in Pediatrics does not become involved in negotiating between parents/guardians in financial disputes. Parents are equally responsible for keeping an account paid, even if there is a court order determining who is to pay. You are welcome to pay the account and collect from the other party.
- Our fees are available upon request.
If you are uninsured or experiencing difficulty paying the balance of your medical bill, please contact our business office for more information about setting up a payment plan, uninsured discount program or charity care program.
