Insurance & Billing
Below is a list of our contracted insurance networks. Specific plan acceptance may vary. If you have an insurance you do not see listed here, please call our office and your insurance company to verify eligibility.

We cannot accept Medicaid/CHIP plans from other states.
Alert: Children's Mercy is excluded from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas plans sold individually, which means that all services rendered by Children's Mercy will not be covered. Lawrence Pediatrics strongly encourages our families to select a plan that includes Children's Mercy and their physicians.
*Newborns are required to be added to a policy by one month of age.
*If your insurance plan is an HMO, a Lawrence Pediatrics provider is required to be listed as your child's primary care physician.
*If your child is covered under more than one insurance plan, both insurances companies must be aware of one another (coordination of benefits). This includes KanCare. Both ID cards must be presented at every visit.
*If you have an insurance plan that is not accepted, our office will provide you with a copy of the office visit and statement of charges so you may submit the visit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
*For safety and security, office policy dictates that patients are required to show evidence of insurance coverage at every visit. If an insurance card is not provided and/or your insurance coverage has terminated, your appointment may be canceled or you may be required to pay for the visit in full before being seen by a provider. Repeated failure to present a valid insurance card at time of service may result in dismissal from the practice.
