Keeping your newborn, infant, child and/or adolescent healthy begins with regular well-child visits. Well visits are scheduled regularly through age 2, and then yearly until age 21. Well visits help keep your child healthy and progressing developmentally. These are considered preventive services.
Because preventive services are important to keeping children healthy, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care ACt (health care reform law) includes a rule that all preventive care screenings and services covered in the American Academy of Pediatric's Bright Futures plan must be covered by most health plans. This is not always true, though, as some older plans, called grandfathered plans, do not have to pay in full for preventive services.
There may also be times when a child needs a service that is not considered preventive on the same day as a well-child visit. If a child is not well or a problem is found or needs to be addressed during the checkup, the physician may need to provide an additional office visit service (called a sick visit) to care for the child. This is a different service and is billed to your health plan in addition to the preventive services provided that day. If you ahve a co-payment for office visits or coinsurance or deductible amounts that you must pay before your health plan pays for these services, our office will charge you these amounts.
