When you visit our office for health care services, you take a personal responsibility for your account.
We will bill your health insurance directly for the services you received at Metropolitan Pediatric Specialists as long as you supply us with a copy of your insurance card. We have contracts with various insurance carriers, PPOs and HMOs. Charges for the services billed to our contracted insurance carriers will be discounted to their allowed amount. Patients are responsible for any copays, deductibles, any non-covered services and usual and customary amounts for non-contracted insurance.
All co-payments are due at the time of service as required by your insurance carrier.
A statement from Children’s Minnesota will be sent out within 30 days of your visit, unless we are billing your insurance carrier. The statement will include the charges incurred, the date they were incurred on, the patients’ name, the diagnosis and procedure codes and any amounts that are due by the insurance carrier and those due by the patient.
If you are uninsured or experiencing difficulty paying the balance of your medical bill, please contact our business office for more information about setting up a payment plan, uninsured discount program or charity care program.
After your visit you may request a copy of blood work done. You will also receive a bill from the outside reference laboratory above and beyond what charges are incurred during your visit. We cannot supply you with a copy of those charges.
For billing inquiries please contact our billing office at Metro Peds.
