Practice Policies

We have compiled a hard copy of Premier Pediatrics’s policies. Click here to download for review. We ask that all new families read this and sign it at the first visit. It contains descriptions of our appointment, insurance, financial, and referral, form, and prescription re-fill policies.

Insurance Information
Accepted Insurance
Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO

We request that an insurance card is presented at each visit. All co-payments and past due balances are due at time of check-in unless previous arrangements have been made with a billing coordinator. We accept cash, check or credit cards. No post-dated checks will be accepted.

Returned Checks
The charge for a returned check is $30 payable by cash or money order. This will be applied to your account in addition to the insufficient funds amount. You may be placed on a cash-only basis following any returned check.

Medical Record Copies
There is no charge for a single set of medical records. Any additional copies will cost $.75 per page. If you are leaving the practice, we suggest that you pick up the records. Premier Pediatrics cannot be responsible for claims that the records have not reached the destination. To guarantee receipt of records, we advise our patience families to pick up the records themselves.

Lab Tests
Premier is in the process of setting up in-house labs in our Brooklyn and Manhattan offices. Until we complete this process, please contact these blood testing centers:
Quest Labs/Lab Corp.
Beth Israel Hospital 10 Union Square East, Manhattan
Methodist Hospital 506 6th Street, Brooklyn

Late policy
Premier Pediatrics strongly enforces our 20 Minute Rule. If you arrive 20 minutes or more late for your Well Child Appointment you will be re-scheduled. The reason for this rule is to attempt to keep as close to schedule as possible. Please be courteous to those who are scheduled after your visit by arriving on time.

Cancellations –We ask that you call us as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment
