Here at Pediatric Orthopedic & Scoliosis Center of The Central Coast we make every effort to provide you with the finest care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this we work hand-in-hand with you and your insurance provider to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. The billing department can be reached by phone at 805-845-6652.
We participate in most health plans. You will need to call your plan and verify if we are In Network. If we are Out of Network you can still see us, but will likely have a higher out of pocket cost. If you have an HMO plan, you will need authorization to see us, usually granted by your primary care provider. If you do not have authorization and see us, you will be considered a self pay patient. We request payment in full at time of service for self pay patients. We do not take auto insurance plans if you were in a motor vehicle accident. You would be considered a self pay patient and you would submit the required documents to your auto policy for reimbursement. If you have a workers compensation claim, we will need written authorization from your adjuster. If you were injured while playing sports and have school or sports team medical coverage, please bring that information with you along with your regular insurance plan(s).
We ask you bring ALL your insurance cards and photo ID for your initial visit.
