Pediatric Associates of Alexandria will submit claims to your primary insurance for reimbursement. We will only submit claims for your secondary insurance if it is a state funded insurance that we currently have a contracted agreement with. For example: Medicaid, Medicare or Tri-Care Prime/Standard.
Pediatric Associates of Alexandria asks that you submit request for referrals at least five business days prior to your scheduled appointment with your child's specialist. Please provide: the child's full name, date of birth, parent or guardian's name, contact phone number, name of insurance, date of appointment, referred physicians complete name and office phone number and diagnosis or reason for office visit. Once the referral is complete, the parent or guardian will be notified by phone that the referral is ready for pick-up at our office. Referrals will not be faxed.
It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to submit a referral request at least five business days prior to the child's appointment with the specialist. Only under extreme emergency circumstances will same day referrals be approved and completed. Referrals cannot be back dated, and in most cases, your insurance requires 24 to 48 hours notice to approve (giving us authorization).
