All new and existing patients MUST disclose to our office if your child has coverage through ANY of the PA medical assistance plans, even if it is a secondary plan
. We are obligated by law as a practice to apply this coverage if your child has it. Therefore, withholding information on your insurance coverage is grounds for dismissal from the practice.
If your child has no health insurance coverage, you can go to Pennsylvania's Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
to see if you qualify for CHIP, Pennsylvania’s program to provide health insurance to uninsured children and teens. There you can find information on providers participating with this insurance.
