Frequently Asked Questions

We serve people, not insurance providers. We remove the middle-man, co-pays, and unpleasant surprises [denials]. The comprehensive and dedicated work in general is considered above the standard of care and therefore elective as far as the insurance industry is concerned.  Therefore, Blossom Pediatrics is out-of-network on all major insurances in order to have clinical independence to optimize your child’s healing. The in-depth evaluations and time required to properly address your concerns require this type of flexibility. At the time of your visit, full payment is expected.

If you choose to seek insurance reimbursement, Blossom Pediatrics will work with you to provide detailed documentation to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement directly from them to you. Something to consider, insurance companies require disclosure of highly personal information, the confidentiality and privacy of this information cannot be guaranteed.

Routine labs and radiology studies ordered by Blossom Pediatrics are generally covered by your insurance. Insurance may cover some advanced and comprehensive testing but not all.

We do everything we can to make sure pediatric holistic and functional pediatrics medicine is affordable, and available to everyone including the ability to use Flexible Savings Accounts and Health Savings Accounts.

For those in financial hardship, we offer reduced rates and multi-payment plans on a case-by-case need basis, please inquire at FinancialSupport@BlossomPediatrics.com for more information.

We are considered a primary care practice, so we treat all conditions that a primary care doctor would. We are not specialists. However, if you need to see a specialist such as a health coach, pulmonologist, cardiologist, or surgeon, for example, you will be referred appropriately. The costs associated with the services provided by specialists or any other healthcare provider outside of Blossom Pediatrics are not covered by your Blossom Pediatrics membership. Beyond visits, the primary mode of communication with our care team is messaging and video chat. We answer quickly during the week (within 24 – 48 hours) and always have a doctor on call to address urgent issues on weekends and holidays. We are often able to take care of acute issues without the need for a visit.

A few points to remember about your Blossom pediatrics membership:
1. We do not take insurance. However, we can provide paperwork for you to submit for out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance. You can also pay for your membership using FSA/HSA dollars.
2. We are not available for same-day emergency appointments.
3. If you have a medical emergency, we recommend that you visit urgent care or an ER.

Being a Blossom Pediatrics patient does not replace health insurance. We advise all members to maintain a separate health insurance plan of their choosing. For blood work, insurance frequently offers full coverage. Please also note that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) includes a requirement that all U.S. citizens purchase health insurance. Being a Blossom Pediatrics patient does not meet this requirement.

We do not accept any form of insurance. Blossom pediatrics is classified as a primary care practice, but insurance companies don’t recognize our comprehensive and personalized model. After each medical visit, we can provide a superbill that you can submit to insurance for out-of-network reimbursement. Many families choose to pay for their plans using FSA/HSA dollars.
