STATEMENT ON NON-ACA-COMPLIANT PLANS
We will request payment in full at time of service if your plan is a short-term medical plan, also known as a gap plan, regardless of network. Please be advised these plans do not cover many essential health benefits, including preventative care. In Kansas, some of these plans are sold by the following companies: Farm Bureau, Freedom Life, Golden Rule, Independence American, National General, and USHealth Group. Non-ACA-compliant plans also include "health sharing" plans, such as Medi-Share and Solidarity Health-Share. Health sharing plans are not health insurance.
*On January 01st, 2022, the No Surprises Act went into effect. If you do not have health insurance, have a health sharing plan or do not want your charges filed to your health insurance, please contact our Billing Department at 785-235-0104 prior to your visit to update your account and ensure you have an estimate on file for your visit as required by the Act.

*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. Failure to coordinate benefits will result in claims denials.
*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.
Please review our Financial Policy.
If you have new insurance, please present card at check-in. 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.
