At Kids Kare Pediatrics, we are committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients and their families.
In order to ensure the continuity of care, effective health monitoring, and improved screening, we have chosen to concentrate our efforts on a select number of families. This approach allows us to provide a more personalized and dedicated level of attention. By concentrating on a smaller group, we can maintain a deeper understanding of your family's medical history, evolving needs, and unique preferences, ultimately leading to improved healthcare outcomes. Our dedication to this limited group also enables us to offer additional value-added services that go beyond what typical insurance covers.
We sincerely hope that you've observed the diverse range of benefits we strive to offer. These benefits include, but are not limited to, conveniences such as same-day sick appointments, shorter waiting times, online scheduling, the option for virtual visits, and consultations available outside regular hours. Our friendly and responsive team remains fully committed to meeting your needs and ensuring a consistently outstanding experience.
It's crucial to emphasize that this fee is not motivated by financial gain. Unlike many other medical practices, we have always refrained from excessive billing for our services and unnecessary tests or procedures. We are mindful of the financial impact on families, whether they are covered by insurance or choose to pay directly. Furthermore, this fee covers all routine services that are usually billed separately, including prescription refills (even for controlled medications), administrative letters, form completions, and prior authorizations. The primary purpose of this fee is to manage our patient population, allowing us to prioritize quality over quantity. In many cases, families may actually save money in the long term.
The only charges not included in the annual fee pertain to weekend clinic visits, no-show penalties, and the issuance of new prescriptions unless they are part of a follow-up care plan from a previous visit.
Our ongoing commitment involves continuous efforts to enhance the quality of care we provide. Your children well-being remains our top priority, guiding us in all our endeavors.
The annual fee is due Oct 1st and renews every year. There are two payment options:
1- You can choose to make a full payment.
One child: $110
Two children: $210
Three children or more: $240
2- Alternatively, we also provide a payment installment plan, allowing you to pay in equal installments monthly or quarterly.
One child: $120
Two children: $225
Three children or more: $265
