As of September 1st Pediatric Partners will no longer be able to offer ADHD, anxiety or depression follow up visits and medication refills at your child’s well visit. Unfortunately we have recently learned that insurance companies are not paying us for the combined visit for any behavioral codes like ADHD or Anxiety and Depression with a well visit done on the same day.
We know several of our patients already have these combo visits scheduled before September 1st and we will honor those despite possible non payment by the insurance company. We want to give our families the care they need due to the fact that many of our patients need sports forms, medication refills and well visits prior to the beginning of the school year.
For those that have a combined well visit with and ADHD or anxiety/depression follow up scheduled after September 1st, we will be contacting you to get your child seen for both visits and discuss your options. For some, we may be able to offer the behavior visit through a telehealth visit and we will discuss that with you when we speak with you.
In the future, we are hopeful to offer more telehealth visits to make behavioral health follow ups more convenient while continuing to offer the excellent care your child deserves. We will communicate more on telehealth visits in our newsletter so please make sure you are signed up for that on our website.
Thank you for your understanding regarding this issue. If you have the time or inclination, please feel free to contact your insurance company directly and ask them to resume payment for these combined visits.
