Andover Pediatrics Forms & Policies

We have been providing quality patient care in our community for over 40 years. Over the years, we have grown and have added doctors and nurse practitioners so we can be more accessible to you. There have been many mergers and acquisitions of medical practices, but we have chosen to remain and independently owned practice. This decision allows us to remain focused on what is best for our patients while providing quality medical care in a local community setting.

Fees & Payment Policy

All of us are participating providers in almost all of the HMO’s and PPO’s available in the State of Massachusetts. In particular, we participate in Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans, Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan, Tufts Health Plan.

If your plan requires a co-payment for office visits, we ask that you pay it at the time of each visit. If you have an indemnity plan, we will submit claims directly to your insurance company as a courtesy to you.

Cancellations

As patients become adolescents, they take more responsibility for themselves and for their own health care. We want both patients and their parents to understand this increased independent role of the adolescent, and that our primary concern and responsibility is for them and for their needs. We encourage our adolescent and young adult patients to speak with us directly, and to feel free to discuss with us any concerns that they may have about their health.

On some occasions, there will be issues, such as sexuality and substance abuse issues, that our patients discuss with us that will be kept confidential. We encourage this type of honest discussion, and it is our policy to keep this type of information confidential, with the exception of issues that might be life-threatening.

Insurance Referrals

If your plan requires referrals for visits to specialists, it is your responsibility to obtain the referral from our office staff in advance of the visit. Do not assume that we have taken care of the referral if your doctor recommends that you see a specialist. Please fill out the form below or contact us with the information. We can only process a referral once you have made an appointment and have provided us with the following information.
