Commonly asked questions and answers:

When and how do I pay the membership fee?

Membership fees can be paid annually or paid in installments, charged monthly to your credit or debit card.

What is not covered by the membership fee?

The following services are not covered by the membership fee:

Vaccinations:We partner with a vaccine company called VaxCare. This partnership allows us to administer the vaccines, then VaxCare bills your insurance directly for all routine pediatric vaccinations. You will be responsible for any copay or deductible required by your insurance plan (just as in any other pediatric practice).

Specialty visits, hospital stays, etc: Any medical services from other medical providers will be billed to your insurance by those providers.

Out-of-office procedures or labs: These, too, can be billed to your insurance by the office administering the labs.

After-hours telephone assessments

Virtual visits (telemedicine)

Do I still need to have insurance?

This is up to you, but we highly recommend having some sort of coverage that may protect you in the event of ER or hospital visits. Dunedin Pediatrics is not a substitute for health insurance. If you choose to come to our practice you may find it advantageous to choose a different insurance plan. You should consult with a financial advisor or a representative from your insurance company to guide your plan choice.

Are you willing to see patients outside of your practice on a fee-for-service basis?

We are willing to see sick patients who are not members on a fee-for-service basis if our schedule permits. Well-child care is limited to patients who are members of Dunedin Pediatrics. Contact our office to check availability and pricing.

Can I be billedfor services if I dont have the payment at the time of my appointment?

Unfortunately, under most circumstances we cannot bill youfor services rendered. Much like you would be expected to pay for your groceries as you leave the grocery store, we insist on payment when you receive services. It is a sad revelation, but after being in business for 5 years, rarely has anyone followed through with payment after leaving the office. Therefore it is our firm policy to collect payment at the time of the appointment. We encourage our patients to become members so that you can predict your costs each month.
