Appointment Fees/Insurance Information:
Due to the nature of providing integrative pediatric medical care, the cost of service at Integrative Pediatrics of Ohio, LLC depends on the complexity of the medical service needed to address a patient’s presenting problem(s). Dr. Allen T. Lewis, MD does not participate in any medical insurance plans; therefore, full payment is due at the time of the service. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover Card. More information can be found in the patient portal under the section titled “Medical Forms” by downloading and reading two documents – Professional Fees and Costs and Specialty Testing Procedures and Costs.
We can “courtesy bill” most insurances. This means we will need your insurance information, so that we can submit the medical insurance claim directly to your insurance company for you. The insurance company will then determine the benefits available to you and send the reimbursement check directly to you. Service provided by Dr. Allen T. Lewis, MD (DBA Integrative Pediatrics of Ohio, LLC) will typically fall under the “out of network providers” category. Integrative Pediatrics of Ohio, LLC does not participate in governmental insurance programs (Medicaid, Medicare and TriCare); therefore, is not able to courtesy bill these insurances.
Laboratory Testing Procedures:
