OUR LATEST NEWS & IMPORTANT CHILD HEALTH CARE UPDATES
Annual Well-Visit Booking Update
Dear Patients and Families,
Our annual well-visit booking policy is changing and yearly well-visits will be booked 365 days from the last well-visit due to insurance policies and office availability.
We are still only booking physicals 3 months out.
We appreciate your understanding,
- The Pediatric Associates Team
Dear Patients and Families,
Pediatric Associates is writing to inform you about important steps you must take if you or your children are covered by Medicaid or a state-sponsored insurance. A federal law passed in response to COVID-19 made sure that no one has lost their insurance coverage since 2020 - however, changes are coming and families who are no longer eligible or who cannot be reached could lose their coverage.
What this means for you. Your insurance company is going to review everyone's coverage over the next several months. It is very important that your insurance company can contact you, and if you are contacted, you reply immediately to requests for information. If you do not respond, you could lose coverage, even if you are still eligible.
Steps you should take to stay covered:
We care that you stay covered! It is very important that you take these steps to make sure you don't lose health coverage.

Important Office Update
To our valued patients and community, we would like to provide an important office update:
During these unprecedented times, we're seeing an extremely high demand for pediatric services, while at the same time, a decline in medical staffing availability.
Due to these circumstances, we are implementing the following policy:
- We are TEMPORARILY not accepting new patients, except for newborns
Our phone lines have been extremely busy, your wait time may be longer than usual, and we appreciate your patience.
Additionally, same-day sick appointments may not be available, however, we will try our very best to see each and every patient as soon as possible.
Thank you sincerely,
- Pediatric Associates
