Billing / Insurance

Pediatric Physicians, Inc participates in many plans including Medicaid, Caresource, Molina, Buckeye Community, Paramount and United Community. Please refer to your provider manual prior to your appointment to make sure we are an in-network provider.  Please note, we are not an In-network provider for any plans acquired through the healthcare.gov marketplace.  We are also not associated with OhioHealth, and are an independently owned practice.

 Please note that all co-pays (no exceptions) MUST be paid at the time of service as is written in all policy contracts. Failure to collect co-pays at the time of service may be considered insurance fraud by insurance companies. At every visit we will ask to see your insurance card for verification. Incorrect information is costly to both the practice and the guarantor/policy holder!

If you do not have insurance, please consult with the billing team for the self-pay guidelines prior to your visit as payment at the time of service is required.
