Our mission is to provide excellent healthcare for infants, children, and adolescents within our community. That starts with preventative visits like well child checkups to help keep children healthy.
Currently a vast majority of insurance plans include coverage for well care appointments with no charge to the patient’s family. Well child checkups include a general assessment of growth and development, screening for medical, behavioral, and psychological problems, advice about safety and development, a review of vaccinations and updates as needed, and the completion of a health form for participation in school, sports, camps and other activities. In the course of performing this type of visit your physician will be happy to address specific concerns or questions that you have about your child’s general well being.
In some instances a more significant or time consuming health or psychological problem will be identified and addressed. If so, the time and effort in addressing that problem may go beyond the scope of what is included in a normal well child check-up.
Some examples include:
These cases may incur additional charges which are outside the scope of what your insurance covers in a well care appointment and may lead to you having some financial responsibility for the visit. If you are having financial difficulties and cannot readily pay your bill at Allegro Pediatrics, please contact our billing office at 425-460-5601. We will be happy to discuss the situation with you to see if we can help arrange a workable payment plan with you.
