Frequently Asked Billing Questions

The focus during a well check visit is on preventing health problems. At a well visit, your provider will assess and screen your child for age-appropriate physical, emotional, and social development.  This includes measurements of growth, a thorough physical exam, and various tests and screenings (such as vision, hearing, and/or mental health screens) as recommended by the AAP depending on your child’s age.  Think of these visits as your chance to learn as much as you can about keeping your child healthy and happy.  Click HEREto read more about why well child visits are so important.
Addressing problems, chronic disease, and illness are considered non-preventative care and are therefore not the primary focus of a well visit.

Well check (preventative) coverage is typically included in most insurance plans, however coverage varies by insurance provider, and some preventative screens recommended by the AAP may not be fully covered by all payors.

If non-preventative problems or illness are addressed during a well visit (which often saves the patient a separate visit), there will typically be an additional non-preventative charge for this service.
