If your insurance plan does not appear on the list above, or you want to confirm that we do participate with your insurance policy, you may call our office at (301)279-6750 to discuss your specific situation. We cannot guarantee payment from any insurance policy. It is the policyholders’ responsibility to verify if their insurance is in-network with Potomac Pediatrics. If we do not participate in your plan you may still join our practice; however, you will be required to pay fee-for-service at the time the services are rendered. While we do not submit claims to out of network insurance companies, we are able to provide necessary documentation should you wish to submit for reimbursement. Please note it is the patients’ responsibility to verify in-network benefits.

Please familiarize yourself with the specifics of your insurance contract including coverage benefits and limitations. While we will submit claims for plans we contract with, we are not responsible for knowing the specifics of each individual policy. Should you receive or request a test or procedure that is not covered by your plan, any outstanding charges will become ‘patient responsibility’. Contact your insurance company with questions about your individual policy.
