Important notes re: testing and the recent surge (click to read)

In light of the Omicron surge we will be adhering more strictly to our COVID-19 screening process in order to keep the office safe for our at risk patients and children under age 5.  If your child has had ANY symptoms including runny nose, congestion, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting/diarrhea or loss of taste or smell in the last 7 days, your well visit will need to be rescheduled or changed to a virtual visit.   If you have  been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 10 days, your visit may also need to be rescheduled.  Please read these Screening Guidelines and contact the office to reschedule or change your appointment (updated 1/11/2022)

We have COVID-19 vaccines for patients aged 5+ and boosters for ages 16 to 18.  Please send us a MyChart message to request an appointment

Insurance & Billing

We have contracts with many insurance carriers. However, it is not possible for our office to know the covered benefits of your plan. Patients and their parents have the responsibility to understand their insurance benefits, coverage, co-payment responsibilities, processing regarding referrals and authorizations, and which laboratory, x-ray, and urgent care facilities are available to them on their plan.

If your insurance is a HMO, we members of Brown and Toland Medical Group and Hill Physicians Medical Group. It is important that one of our doctors is listed on the patient’s card as the Primary Care Physician.

Below is a list of some of the insurance plans we are contracted with:

PLEASE NOTE: Within the Plans listed, the carriers are offering "Narrow Network" plans that we may not be considered in-network providers for. Please verify our Tax ID Number 47-1370520 with your insurer to confirm our participation status with your particular plan.
