Our Policies and Insurance Affiliations


  1. Co-pays and patient deductibles are due at the time of service.
  2. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
  3. We require 24 hours notice on all prescription refills.
  4. We require a picture ID/drivers license to pick up control drug prescriptions in the office.

Medicaid Information

We participate with 4 Medicaid Managed Care Plans (First Choice by Select Health, Molina, Healthy Blues by BCBS, and Absolute Total Care) and Regular Medicaid.

If you have commercial insurance, this will be your child’s primary plan and Medicaid will be secondary.  It is the parent’s responsibility to provide all health insurance that their child has.  Failing to provide the correct health insurance at time of service could be consider fraud by the health insurance company and subject to loss of benefits.  Parents will be held liable for their child’s bill, if the insurance company denies for “other health insurance must process first”.
