Our Policy on Child Development and Behavior Screenings:

An important part of our well-child visits includes an assessment of your child’s learning, behavior, and development. This requires you to complete one or more brief developmental-behavioral screening questionnaires at certain well-child visits.

These developmental screening questionnaires help us see whether your child is at risk for problems, now or in the future, and if so, what to do next. The screening tools we use also give you a chance to talk to your child’s pediatric provider about what you need to know as a parent, how you are coping as a parent, and how you are doing as a family. The questions we will ask are important because they assist us in helping your child to become as successful as possible in school and in life.

 

Screening Fees

We must charge for this extra service in the amount of $20.00 (discount is available if paid on the date of service) when a screening questionnaire(s) is completed. You will see this on your billing sheet as procedure 96110. Most insurers pay for this service; however, if the claim is denied by your insurer as a “non-covered” service, you will be responsible for the payment.

Please be assured we are working with the American Academy of Pediatrics to make sure this service will become fully covered by all insurers and Medicaid. If you do receive our bill for developmental-behavioral screening after denial of the claim by your insurer, please understand how important this service is to your child’s well-being.

 

Screening Tools

As Pediatric providers, we want to receive the most accurate information to help us lead to the best diagnosis for your child. We offer several screening tools online for parents, patients and teachers to fill out prior to an office visit.
