At Triad Pediatrics, we strive to serve our patients and families as efficiently and effectively as possible. We request that each patient do their part in cooperating and adhering to the policies of our practice regarding insurance and payment. Full payment for all copays, deductibles, and non-covered services is expected at the time of your appointment. If covered by insurance, all services will be billed to your insurance company. The patient is responsible for all charges applied to their copay, deductible, and non-covered services by their insurance. Payments can be made at the time of service in the form of cash, check, or credit card. Payments are also accepted online through our secure portal. If you have any questions or trouble accessing the portal please give our office a call and a team member will be happy to help.
It is the patient’s responsibility to:
Know your insurance plan benefits pertaining to pediatrics well and sick visits.
Know what’s covered. Not all services are a covered benefit. It is your responsibility to be aware of your insurance company’s plan for payment of office visits, immunizations, well-child exams, and routine annual exams including school, camp, or sports physicals.
Know if there is a co-payment.
Know if there is a deductible and the amount of the deductible.
Notify your insurance company and your Employer’s human resource department of the birth of any new baby within 30 days of their birth.
Carry your insurance card and present it to the front desk staff at the time of service.
Make full payment of office visit co-payment, deductible, co-insurance, and non-covered services at the time of your office visit.
Advise the front desk staff of any changes to your address, home or emergency telephone numbers, and insurance coverage at check-in.
In the event that you do not have insurance coverage, please inquire as to our reasonably set fees when scheduling your appointment.
If you have a previous outstanding balance and now have new insurance to cover your current charges, you are still responsible for the previous outstanding balance.
If your insurance company makes a partial payment and you are responsible for the balance, or if you have any outstanding balance, full payment is expected in a timely fashion, but no later than 30 days from the receipt of your statement. If you must make alternate payment arrangements, please contact our billing department promptly at 336-802-1111.
Pay for returned checks: If your bank returns a check without sufficient funds, you will be responsible to reimburse us for our financial institution’s fee of $25 per check.
*If your child is going to be covered by NC Medicaid or NC Health Choice, it is the responsibility of the parent to contact the caseworker in the county you reside in order to obtain a policy number within the first 30-60 days after birth.
Inform Triad Pediatrics staff if you have both primary and secondary insurance (e.g., BCBS primary, Medicaid secondary).

The base fee to see a provider is $50 for a sick/acute visit and $85 for a wellness visit. If additional labs, procedures, or tests are ordered there may be additional charges. In addition, if you are seeing a provider for an initial ADHD or behavioral health evaluation the fee will be $85. If an injury related visit applies (e.g., X-rays are ordered and need to be read) additional charges will apply. Please call our office to discuss these specifics prior to your appointment if you desire more information.
