Thank you for choosing Fairhope Pediatrics as your child’s medical home. We are committed to providing you with exceptional service. Each year, insurance companies are shifting more costs to families. We are adding a new service to help families manage these health care expenses.
Just like your telephone or cable bill, you can now put a credit card on file to pay your Fairhope Pediatrics balance automatically after all insurance payments and adjustments have been made. We will bill your insurance company first and upon their determination of benefits, we will only charge your credit card on file when they inform us of your responsibility. Circumstances when your card would be charged include but are not limited to uncollected copays, coinsurance, deductible, any non-covered services, and/or denial of services.
- Once your insurance has processed your claims, an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) will be available to both you and our office showing the amount of your responsibility. You will typically receive the EOB before we do, so if you disagree with the patient responsibility, please contact your insurance carrier immediately.
- When we receive the EOB, we will apply any payment/adjustment information to your account. At that time, any remaining balance owed by you will be charged to your credit card on file and a receipt will be emailed to you for your records.
If the credit card on file becomes invalid, please notify Fairhope Pediatrics immediately. If for some reason we are not notified of any changes and the credit card on file is declined, we will attempt to reach you to update the information. If we are unable to reach you, a surcharge of $25.00 may be applied to your account. This information will need to be updated prior to scheduling any future appointments.
Should there be an adjustment regarding a claim, we will promptly reimburse you the portion that is due back to you.
To streamline our billing and payment system and to provide a seamless, convenient way for families to pay their bills, effective 09/01/2019, any account that has a history of a collections status will be required to keep a credit card on file.
