Policies

Co-payments

All co-payments are expected at time of service. For your convenience, Delaware Pediatrics accepts cash, personal checks, and Visa/MasterCard debit and credit cards. Surcharges will be assessed for returned checks or co-payments not made at time of service.

Our contracts with insurance companies require that we verify your current coverage and collect your co-payment at each visit. Please bring your insurance card to every appointment.

Missed Appointments / Cancellations

If you can not keep an appointment, please notify us at least 2 hours prior to a sick appointment and 24 hours prior to a well child appointment. This courtesy on your part makes it possible to give the appointment to another patient who needs to see the doctor. If you do not contact us at least 2 hours prior to a sick appointment and 24 hours prior to a well child appointment, it will be considered a missed appointment.

We track each missed appointment. When an appointment is missed you will receive a missed appointment fee. If more than 3 appointments are missed within a 12 month period, the patient and his or her siblings will be subject to dismissal from the practice.

Form and Paperwork Requests

Forms requested with a well child office visit will be completed at the time of visit. Please note that there is a form fee for completion of paperwork not submitted at the time of a well visit. Please allow 5-10 business days for any form not requested during a well child visit. Please download our practice privacy policy.

Is Your Child Sick?TM

New @ Delaware Peds

  • Well Visit

    Please take the time to contact us to schedule your child’s well visit. This will help to ensure that your child’s visit will occur in a timely fashion, and that any necessary forms for school or sports will be completed well ahead of deadlines. Please note: Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) forms must be completed on or after April 1st in order to participate. These forms may be based on a physical examination conducted within 12 months of the signature. The clearance is valid through June 30 of the following school year. Please let our staff know at the time of your child’s visit that you need a form completed.
