Fees for our office visits at Care Network — CHOP Campus range from $100 to $250+. Fees are decided based on the child's history, physical and medical decisions made during the visit. Charges for immunizations, testing and laboratory services are separate.
Payment for services is due at the time of the visit. For your convenience, we will provide you with a receipt to submit for reimbursement to your insurance company. If your plan requires a copay for an office visit, it will be collected at the time of your visit. We accept cash, credit card or check. Please bring your insurance card to each visit.
HMO plans require referrals to any specialist that your child may need to see. You can request a referral by calling 215-590-2178 and selecting option 4.
Please make your referral request no less than 48 hours prior to your child's appointment to ensure that completion in time for your visit. Most referrals are submitted electronically to the specialty office and thus do not require any follow-up on your behalf to ensure completeness.
We recommend that you check with your insurance carrier to determine coverage for services. Although our office may participate with your plan, it does not always mean services are paid in full. Any balance after insurance payment is the patient's responsibility.
